SAVE WARD F PARKS AND PARKING LOT
The City of Jersey City has plans to change the parking lot of the Mary McLeod Bethune Center (MMBC) to a park!! The Fulton Avenue Park located half a block away (on Fulton Avenue between MLK Drive and Bergen Avenue) will become a parking lot. This is to accommodate new owners of the old Fulton Theater building which will become a synagogue. Stand with the Jersey City NAACP Branch #2086!! WE OPPOSE THE LAND SWAP!! The parking lot and park at their current locations are available to all. Promises to the Ward F community were made on several occasions to upgrade the Fulton Avenue Park. Green Acres funds were awarded to the city to maintain the Fulton Avenue Park. Where are those dollars? Another park ignored is the Cornelius Parker Park, located on Madison Avenue, between Bramhall and Clinton Avenues. Restore the Cornelius Parker Park and the Fulton Avenue Park. A 1st reading ordinance will be introduced on September 11th at 6pm for the Mary McLeod Bethune Center parking lot. Remind City Hall these actions are not acceptable. Call 201-547-5150. Request to speak during the public speaking session. The public is allowed 5 minutes. A 2nd reading is on September 25th. Call Ward F Councilman Jermaine Robinson @ 201-547-5338. He represents Ward F and has only one vote. TELL THE JERSEY CITY COUNCIL DO NOT MOVE MMBC PARKING LOT! DO NOT MOVE FULTON AVENUE PARK! RESTORE CORNELIUS PARKER PARK!
