    ADVERTISEMENT FOR BIDS
    CITY OF HACKENSACK
    BERGEN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY


    Sealed bids will be received by the City of Hackensack, 65 Central Avenue, Hackensack, New Jersey 07601 in the County of Bergen and State of New Jersey on April 19, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. prevailing time, and then publicly opened and read aloud for:

    REDEVELOPMENT OF MAIN STREET AND
    STATE STREET TRAFFIC SIGNAL IMPROVEMENTS
    CITY OF HACKENSACK
    BERGEN COUNTY, NEW JERSEY

    The work to be performed under this contract includes the following: The City of Hackensack is undertaking the redevelopment of a street network in their downtown area and changing Main Street and State Street from two, one-way streets back to two way operations between Passaic Street and Essex Street. This contract requires the replacement of 11 traffic signal installations and associated intersection improvements while maintaining traffic to the downtown businesses and offices. In addition, 6 traffic signal installations will be completely eliminated from the various intersections along State Street and Main Street when they become two way streets. Eventually these 11 new signals will become fully actuated as part of a future, large, interactive traffic signal system that requires the additional traffic camera and pushbutton cables to be installed as part of this contract for the future use.

    It is imperative that the successful contractor understands they will be coordinating their work with the resident engineer and city police department to maintain access at all possible times. Construction will be limited to not more than 3 adjacent intersections at any one time, and be subject to the approval of the Resident Engineer. Construction is to commence at the intersection of State Street and Passaic Street and progress southerly to the State Street and Essex Street intersection. Once the construction is completed on State Street, except for the final milling and paving, State Street will become a two way road to relieve the pressure of the work to be done on Main Street.

    The contract will then skip the intersection of Essex Street, Hudson Street, and Main Street, and progress northerly along Main Street, starting at Main Street and Court Street / Sussex Street, and continuing up to Ward Street. Once all of the work is completed on Main Street, then the intersection reconstruction of Essex Street and Hudson Street / Main Street can begin.

    All 11 intersections will be paved as part of the base bid, and if the City of Hackensack chooses the bid alternate, full milling and paving of both roads will be completed, once all traffic signals are installed and operational.

    City of Hackensack Beginning Project to Return Main Street to Two Way street, Expected to Aid in Downtown Revitalization

    HACKENSACK, N.J. -- City officials are announcing the beginning of a major infrastructure project that will return Main and State Streets to two-way traffic, a change that will support Mayor John Labrosse and the City Council's goal of revitalizing Downtown Hackensack. The change will begin with State Street, which runs parallel to Main Street. State Street should be complete by late Fall. Work on Main will commence after State Street is completed. The entire project is expected to be complete by August of 2018. The city will be using multiple communication methods to inform residents and drivers of the change, including the city website, reverse 911 and Nixle alerts, electronic signage and other means.

    "A series of urban planning professionals have advised that one way main streets cannot effectively function in mixed residential, commercial centers, so we are very eager to see this project be completed," said Mayor Labrosse. "This change will increase the amount of potential customers driving up and down Main Street, benefiting existing businesses and helping us attract more of them. It will also help us make Main Street more pedestrian and bicycle friendly, supporting our vision of a sustainable and walkable Downtown area." The mayor added that steps will be taken to ensure traffic runs as smoothly as possible including tandem parking that eliminates the need to parallel park, moving buses off Main, and changing the times in loading zones.  

    Hackensack's Main Street is in the midst of a major revitalization with nearly $1 billion in new real estate value coming to the city over the next several years, including thousands of new housing units and several major commercial developments. The Two Way Main Street conversion is another piece of the City's vision for its Downtown area, with an overall goal of making Hackensack a destination and the cultural and economic center of Bergen County.

    Hackensack receives $800,000 State Grant for Foschini Park Baseball Field Improvements 


    HACKENSACK, N.J. -- The City of Hackensack has been awarded an $800,000 grant to fund improvements to the Foschini Park baseball fields from the State of New Jersey Green Acres program. The grant funding will be used to rehabilitate two fields -- one little league and one baseball field -- that are bordered by East Camden Street. Proposed improvements include the regrading and reseeding of the fields, along with installation of new infield clay. Field amenities, fencing, and lighting will be installed, and storm water management improvements will be added to address flooding issues at the site.

    "This grant award will help further our mission of improving recreation facilities for Hackensack's children and providing them with the opportunities they deserve to stay active," said Mayor John Labrosse. "The fact that these expenses will be covered by state grants is great news for Hackensack taxpayers and on behalf of the City I thank the State for recognizing the need to fund this project." 

    The $800,000 grant award is separated into a $600,000 grant and a $200,000 no interest loan payable to the state over a thirty year period. The city is also currently seeking a $100,000 grant from the Bergen County Open Space Trust Fund that will increase the total award and further protect city taxpayers. 

    "The best investment we can make as a city is in our children," said Councilman David Sims. "As a youth sports coach I see first-hand the poor condition of many of our facilities and it will continue to be a major priority of this City Council to bring major improvements to our recreation amenities." 

    The grant awards are dependent on the successful passage of the State Budget.

    Hackensack Council introduces Continental Plaza property Redevelopment Ordinance

    HACKENSACK, N.J. -- The Hackensack City Council voted to introduce an ordinance on Tuesday that is expected to pave the way for an extensive redevelopment at Continental Plaza, a major commercial property in the city. Currently home to three large office towers as well as a restaurant, the redevelopment plan would encourage the site to be converted into a mixed-use development that could include residential units, retail space, a hotel and significant public open space, among other considerations. The redevelopment ordinance will be subject to a public hearing at the September Planning Board Meeting and will be voted on for final passage at an upcoming City Council meeting.

    "Continental Plaza is one of our city's signature properties and we believe that passing this redevelopment ordinance will allow it to be reborn as a place where people can live, shop, dine and enjoy themselves," said Mayor John Labrosse. "This fits perfectly with our overall vision of redeveloping our city to bring new tax revenue and amenities to our residents."

    Located off of Route 4 across from the Shops at Riverside mall, Continental Plaza was recently sold and has had an increasing rate of vacancy in recent years as the regional market for office space has struggled. The city's vision for the property would allow it to be repurposed into a more in-demand mixed-use complex.

    "Adaptive reuse projects like this one and several others that are already underway allow us to satisfy current market demands in older buildings without developers incurring added demolition and construction costs," said Deputy Mayor Kathleen Canestrino. "We're excited to see Continental Plaza be redeveloped and look forward to seeing the site progress in the coming years."

    Hackensack Officials Urge Residents to Report Low Flying Planes to FAA
    Campaign Part of Ongoing City Effort to Advocate for Safer Flight Path

    HACKENSACK, N.J. -- City officials are urging Hackensack residents to report low-flying planes in the area to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) by using the agency's dedicated phone hotline and email inbox. Part of the city's ongoing effort to advocate for a safer flight path in and out of Teterboro Airport, officials stressed the need for residents to make their voices heard at last night's City Council meeting.

    "We have been in constant contact with the FAA, Teterboro Airport and TANAAC to fight for a safer flight path that would reduce the potential for serious danger in our city, and the fact that the FAA is now considering two potential alternate routes is a testament to the level of engagement that Hackensack residents have shown on this issue," said Deputy Mayor Kathleen Canestrino. "It is crucial for residents to continue amplifying our voices by utilizing these tools and we are encouraging all residents to continue documenting low-flying planes and excessive noise and reporting these issues to the FAA."

    The FAA Phone Hotline is: 201-288-8828 (or Toll Free at 800-225-1071)

    The FAA Email Inbox is noiseoffice@teb.com

    Prevent Theft. Lock Your Vehicle. 

    The majority of vehicle break-ins occur outside private homes in driveways or on the street in front of the victim’s home. Thefts from vehicles would be drastically reduced if people would lock their car doors and stop leaving valuables inside their vehicles. Leaving items on display, whether in or on a dashboard or in a mounted cradle, or sitting on the passenger seat, is an open invitation to opportunist criminals.

    Tips for Protecting Valuables:

    If You Have a Garage ~ Use It rather than parking outside where your vehicle is more vulnerable.

    When parking in a garage lock the garage door and your vehicle. Locking both the garage and vehicle doors, the chances of deterring a thief greatly improve.

    Remove All Items of Value such as handbags, wallets, cell phones, MP3 players, iPods, laptops, GPS’s from the car when you are not driving. Take out removable radios and faceplates. Engrave expensive accessories. Don’t leave anything in your glove compartment or center console – it is the first place thieves look.

    Don’t Cover Items in Your Car with a Blanket or Jacket. Ideally, you should take them with you, but if unavoidable, place them in the trunk prior to arriving at your destination.

    Completely Close All Car Windows

    Park in a Well-Lit Area Close to Your Destination

    Avoid Parking Between Large Vehicles they provide cover for thieves.

    Use Outdoor Lighting - porch and motion lights help deter crime.

    Don’t Leave the Registration or Title in Your Car. Your car registration has your address on it. File the title at your home or office, and carry registration in your purse or wallet.

    Record Serial Numbers of Your Valuables

    Get involved! Be your neighbor’s eyes and ears. Talk to neighbors regarding activity in the neighborhood. By becoming familiar with those who belong in your neighborhood, you can help reduce crime.

    Call 911 When a Crime is in Progress.

    By taking simple precautions and just a few moments to remove valuable items from your car you can significantly improve your chances of not becoming a victim of this type of crime even when your car is left unattended in your driveway, outside your house or place of work.

    IF THEY CAN SEE IT THEY CAN STEAL IT.
