In a news release, the city said this process will allow residents and business owners the chance to join in a discussion about Bayonne’s quality of life, schools, development opportunities, transportation and more.

The City’s Master Plan, last updated in 2000, is a comprehensive overview of the city’s vision for the next 10 to 15 years.

“As we move forward with the Re-Examination of City’s Master Plan it is important to remember that public outreach and input is one of the most important components of the process,” Mayor Jimmy Davis said in a statement.

“This survey, and the coming public involvement sessions, will assist in the collection of comments and recommendations from the public.”

The City will host the first round of public involvement sessions on March 1st, March 2nd and March 3rd. These meetings will be hosted on the following dates, at the following locations:

Tuesday, March 1 at City Hall; 630 Avenue C

 

Wednesday, March 2 at Washington Community School; 191 Avenue B

 

Thursday, March 3 at Bayonne Senior Center 16 West 4th Street

Each meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. The same format will be used at each meeting, so attendance at only one session is necessary.

DMR Architects, an architectural firm and urban planning firm retained by the City, is overseeing the Master Plan Re-examination.

For more information, please contact Francis Reiner, DMR Architects, with any questions at (201) 288-2600.

In addition to the public meetings, starting yesterday, Bayonne residents and business owners are invited to participate in a community survey.

Surveys can be completed online by visiting the City website, www.bayonnenj.org, or at www.surveymonkey.com/r/bayonnenj.

Hard copies are also available at Bayonne City Hall and the Bayonne Free Public Library. All surveys should be completed by February 26th.
