1921: Jersey City Under Commission Government
A Book of Achievement

Jersey City In The Future

This Web version:

HE city administration at the present time is confronted with a series of extremely important problems which must be solved if the city is to take advantage of the magnificent opportunities now presenting themselves.

The completion of the vehicular tunnel in the next few years will have as important a bearing upon Jersey City's development as did the construction of the McAdoo Tunnels. It will bring here a large number of factories and businesses of various kinds, which in turn will bring many thousands of people here seeking homes.

This and other developments indicate that Jersey City is about to enter upon a new and extremely prosperous era in its history. This makes it imperative that comprehensive plans should be made to meet and to take advantage of this situation.

Broadly speaking, the needs of the city under these conditions which must be provided for, fall under the following heads:

  1. Convenient and expeditious street transportation.
  2. Provisions for economical transportation of freight to and from New York and from factories to local railroad and steamship points of delivery and receipt of freight.
  3. Adequate public school facilities.
  4. Ample public hospital facilities.
  5. A plentiful supply of pure and wholesome water.
  6. An adequate supply of gas and electric light of good quality, at cheap prices, for both cooking, heating, lighting and light manufacturing.
  7. A tax rate which shall compare favorable with the other municipalities of the State.
  8. The provision of adequate housing accommodations to accommodate in reasonable comfort the people who come here to live and to do business.
The present City Commissioners have given careful attention to these comprehensive and important problems, and have carefully matured a plan for the development in Jersey City of all of these advantages and facilities.
