Administration - 2/6/2017 12:05:00 PM

Mayor Jimmy Davis today issued a statement upon the release of the City of Bayonne’s request for proposals (RFP) for a bicycle share program:

“As we continue to build for the City’s future I am pleased to announce the release of a formal request for proposals for the formation and maintenance of the bike share program in Bayonne. Over the past two and a half years my administration has invested heavily in our roadway infrastructure and parks system. In the same time we’ve received increasing requests for the vetting and establishment of a bike share program. The institution of such a program would link our city at strategically placed locations and increase transportation options for local residents and visitors. I look forward to announcing an award next month and our subsequent steps in the weeks to follow.”

Mayor Davis Issues Comment After Highly Anticipated Zoning Board Meeting - January 24, 2017

Administration - 1/24/2017 1:20:00 PM

Last night’s highly anticipated Zoning Board meeting included the continuation of an application to construct a Muslim Community Center in Bayonne. As many are aware, this issue has gathered a great deal of attention from local, statewide, and national media. In an effort to accommodate a larger than average anticipated attendance the hearing was moved from City Council Chambers at City Hall to Oresko Community School. Public attendance was in the hundreds and I am pleased to say that, with very few minor exceptions, the continued consideration of the application went on without incident or disruption. I would personally like to thank the Bayonne School District for assisting us in our efforts to accommodate and encourage public participation in the meeting. I would also like to express gratitude to my staff who were able to arrange a live stream of the meeting on official City of Bayonne social media in light of the fact that the meeting could not be broadcast live on our community access station. No decision was made last night due to the meeting’s duration, which extended into the later evening hours. The parties involved are currently in the process of scheduling the continuation of the application in the weeks to come.
