  1. HERE ARE A FEW QUESTIONS: 1) How come the Harrison Redevelopment Agency doesn't have a web page? 2) How come there are so many secret meetings, that at times even councilman don't know about these meetings until the next day? 3) How come the Town doesn't have a web page? 4) How come the budget isn't on-line? 5) How come since 1997, were working on 9 years, we only have a Hotel from the Harrison Development Agency? And the property on which that Hotel was put on wasn't even on the original re-development area, it was made a re-development area some time in 2001 when the idea of a hotel came about. 6) How come after 9 years of having a re-development agency, not only has nothing been done, BUT MY TAXES WENT UP EVERY YEAR!!! 7) How come no one has continued Millans work (SIDD/NPP) and fixed up Harrison Ave or FER BLVD.? 8) How come the Mayor surrounds himself with people like Peter Higgins, who couldn't win an election against Doran who seems useless in town; or Tom Powell who seems to have fallen off the face of the earth after he had no more jobs to give at PVSC & can build his 2 family homes...... I DON"T KNOW HOW THIS MAYOR CAN RUN IN 2006 SOMEONE PLEASE STEP UP. STOP THE METROSTARS BEFORE IT'S TO LATE. THANK YOU
  2. Very interesting.......I recently got my hands on a copy of the "Water Redevelopment Plan". This idea to create the Harrison Re-development Agency, came from Councilman Raymond McDonoough and Councilman Peter Higgins n and about 1996. Wasn't a bad idea, people all over the State were doing it (throughout the years we saw convictions cause of it, $$+politics = Corruption{pay to play}) Anyway, if you get a copy of this plan, which is located in the construction office at the town Hall, you can see various studies & analysis: Environmental/Traffic/Market All which are dated 1998 After 7 years and planning changes; ie. Movie Studios, Malls, Huge office complexes, Stadiums......... WE NEED NEW STUDIES, {BEFORE THE METROSTARS IS FINAL} On page 35 of the Redevelopment Plan their is a PLAN OF ACTION. "Development Schedule..... 1. Waterfront walkway / Flood control project.....Ensure that the project goes to construction as soon as possible...." #1 Flood protection is mentioned, I'm sure for Safety reasons, but it doesn't generate money like a developer, so Safety comes second like Education, our kids (JFK stadium) and Seniors. What about the "Preliminary Study" created by Susan Gruel, P.P. Heyer, Gruel & Talley, PA. On August 14, 1998 this company made a report which they worked on since August 26, 1997 when 1st hired. No where on this report does it mention anything about the Mount Laurel Act, which our town Politicians, if not lawyers should have known. Mount Laurel act protects lower income families, making sure that a town creates affordable housing as well as Higher priced housing. This over look will cost the town Millions to tax payers, because the Harrison Redevelopment agency and the Mayor are not obligating the developers to build the low income housing, so the town will accept responsibility. AGAIN DEVELOPMENT AT ANY COST, INCLUDING HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES!! Lets start the discussion with this.
  3. Let's see what traffic is like when Clay street bridge closes. Imagine a 20,000 fan game.......
  4. Sad to hear Harrison no longer has the best soccer team. no pride in BLUE TIDE
  5. I tell you what, It's depressing to see that no one in Harrison can step up and go against the way this re-development is going. I can't wait for the new elections in 2006. As for now, Doug Forrester would be my vote, just to rattle the town a bit. These Democrats and democrat redevelopers need to be shaken up. They've been shaking us up. DOUG FORRESTER HAS MY ENDORSEMENT!!
  6. Here is a great address to send a complaint to: Richard.Codey@gov.state.nj.us BUT WE NEED EVERYONE TO SEND A COMPLAINT. STOP THE METROSTARS WOULD BE A GOOD COMPLAINT.
  7. Oh, he was just a founding father of the company and when it started to thrive, he sold his part to his buddys.
  8. The only way to make a difference is to contact the politicians from high to low. Congressmen, Assemblymen, I have a list on my topic. You people like to complain, but do nothing about it. Write an e-mail, call, stress your opinion. Get people involved. Go to town meetings and show your face. PLEASE, AS A HARRISON RESIDENT MYSELF, I BEG OF YOU TO TRY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
  9. More name calling. Really I start to think it has something to do with a type of Harrison Characteristic. Try staying off the liquor and open your eyes to the truth. These post seem to created by someone who took some time, all backed up by newspaper articles. NOT BAD! FACTS. GOOD THINGS FOR HARRISON.
  10. OK, so I might have went a little over board with the "the best place In the World." bit, but I am Proud of Harrison. Remember when it was a great place to live. I JUST WANNA MAKE A DIFFERENCE! There was no need for name calling!
  11. Seems like a few people may be picking a candidate. I'm a little impressed too. And we need a few more people to attend Town Meetings. It's the first Tuesday of every month. 6:30 pm (I think) lol. Even if you think your appearance doesn't mean much, you should attend. Listen to what goes on. Listen to how our politicians Speak or not! --YOUR APPEARANCE-- ------ IS WHAT-------- ----- THEY FEAR,------ IT WILL MOTIVATE THEM OR MAKE THEM LEAVE!! P.S. Someone had ask me what my Goal/Motivation was. Easy to do whats best for Harrison, and all Harrisonians. To do it with PRIDE! To do it So I can remain Proud, to be from Harrison, the best place In the World. God Bless America! God Bless Harrison!
  12. MAY I ASK, WHO'S RUNNING THIS RE-DEVELOPMENT? IS THEIR NO ONE WHO CAN GIVE US A STRAIT STORY? P.S. I JUST HEARD THAT THERE WAS A SPECIAL TOWN MEETING ON FRIDAY OCTOBER 7th AT 5:30pm. WHAT IS THIS TOWN TRYING TO HIDE? SPECIAL MEETINGS....5:30.....(does the average business worker still get home by 5:30 pm?)
