The image of Jersey City, NJ has changed dramatically during the last decade. The construction of luxury high-rises has considerably intensified, bringing profit to developers while burdening its residents. The waterfront area gets more crowded with the tallest buildings located along the shoreline and overshadowing the rest of the city.

The planned construction of 5 congested high-rise buildings with the tallest, 51-story tower, at the shore end of the ground of Pier 6, which has only narrow side walkways for public access to the Hudson River shoreline and no green space, is just one of many examples of enriching developers at the expense of our safety and quality of life.

The lack of effective planning to provide sufficient infrastructure, such as schools, health care, transportation, parks and green spaces etc., has created significant challenges for the growing population in Jersey City. Furthermore, the noise and air-pollution from massive construction, in addition to frequent interruption of water supply, all have negative impact on our lives. Residents of the coastal area of Jersey City no longer feel that they live in a healthy urban environment where both nature and people can thrive.

It is very disappointing that there is a lack of transparency in regard to development plans, as we often find out information either from media or when excavators have already started digging the ground next to our doors.

The Pier 6 Project is going for approval to the Jersey City Planning Board and the only way to make a difference is by making our voice heard. Can we count on your support today by signing our petition, which appeals to the JC City Council, Planning Committees and Environmental Agencies to make the Pier-6 Plan friendly to the neighboring communities?

Mandalay Board, on behalf of the Mandalay Community
