On Friday, the VVPA met with Steve Fulop and Candice Osbourne to discuss the overwhelming issues our community has with the 87 micro units in our neighborhood. Despite what the City had said in the Hudson Reporter, they can not support the community against this development because they believe their hands are tied both financially and legally.
Despite Mayor Fulop’s opinion. .. this is not over. We have been told we have a legitimate case legally, procedurally, and on principal and your involvement is key.
Tuesday night we will be discussing our plan of action. We have outlined strategies and will be assigning jobs. We need everyone’s involvement and attention at this time. It is extremely important to make this meeting. If you can not, please send a representative in your place.
We need your voice, your presence and DONATIONS to convince our Mayor to do the right thing and stand up for the community and not to defend outside developers.
It is imperative that we raise as much money as we can in the coming weeks to retain a law firm. Since the Van Vorst Park Association is a non profit 501c3 organization, all donations are tax deductible. You can donate via PayPal at brightandvarick.blogspot.com. You can also send a check to the VVPA at 83 Wayne Street Jersey City NJ 07302. PLEASE share the donation information with all your neighbors.
All donations shall be used toward the Bright and Varick legal defense. Please note so on your check or online donation. Donations shall be tracked and if funds are not necessary, (we hope) monies can be reimbursed a proportional amount to the funds spent.
Come to our meeting on Tuesday night October 29th-7:30pm at the Barrow Mansion, hear our plans and find out how to participate and have your voices heard!!!!
