Guest Stunned resident Posted December 15, 2005 Report Share Posted December 15, 2005 I just read the article (if you can call it an article) about the Mayor and Council voting to give the Advance Group (named Advanced at Harrison Urban Renewal, cute!) a 20 year tax abatement for the Guyon property. Has the Mayor lost it or has he simply been generously paid off. A 20 year tax abatement is unheard of. Newark and Elizabeth give 5 year tax abatements and only in certain areas. The Guyon property pays $400,000 in taxes and parking tax revenues now. The area is only undeveloped because Pete Higgins and the illegally formed Redevelopment Agency has prevented private development of the area. Where is the FBI and Chris Christie? Please step in and stop this madness. To anyone thinking of buying a property on South F.E. Rodgers blvd, go there at 6 to 9 p.m. at night and smell the gas smell from the sewer system and ask for an environmental assessment, the Guyon property has been an industrial site since the beginning of time.
