Downtown Station South Plan is Back

Update: The resolution and 50-plus page document on the Downtown Station South were apparently informational only and have been taken down off the council agenda posted on Councilman Rashid Burney's web site.
The revised Downtown Station South study up for discussion at Monday's City Council meeting is still massive - 161 properties over 18 blocks. When first presented a few years ago, it was the most ambitious study on the books. The council will consider whether to authorize development of a redevelopment plan based on the revised study results.
The study covers blocks south and west of the main train station. Click here to read Plaintalker's earlier story. More later on this topic.

In the nearly three years since that study was done, New Jersey's courts have been very assertive about the issues involved in redeveloment plans. The legal criteria for defining areas "in need of redevelopment" have been tightened up considerably. The 2005 plan needs careful examination!

The whole city needs redevelopment. Let's get some leadership, city council, and develop a viable plan.
