There has been a strong initiative in recent years to improve the quality, safety, and appearance of the streets and properties in The Heights. One of the determined forces in this project is the Central Avenue Special Improvement District Management Corporation (CASID), a non-profit group whose office is one block away from this property on Summit Avenue. Examples of its work and missions include:
- Promotes positive economic and social growth in the district and surrounding areas by providing resources and support to business owners, and assisting them in following through on maintenance, efficient management, and improvements.
- Administrative support available for current business owners, as well as people considering opening a business in the area. Their staff has ability to promote operating businesses with marketing, website maintenance, and graphic design.
- Assists in the general improvement of the area’s buildings’ appearance and functionality, including graffiti and litter, parking issues, and obtaining grants and incentives.
- In 1994, a $1.5 million streetscape renovation was initiated, and, with cooperation from architecture firm Miceli, Kulik, Williams and Associates, provided the district with new sidewalks, lighting, landscaping, benches, trash receptacles, and much more. All came together to give the area an updated, hometown look.
- Cooperates with the Jersey City Police Department, also stationed on nearby Central Avenue, to address any safety concerns in the Heights neighborhood.
- Promotes special events that bring people out to enjoy what the streets and businesses have to offer. The “Everything Jersey City Festival” occurred on May 22, 2010 and brought an estimated 23,000 people to the Heights district for a day of fun activities, and plans are in effect for even better success of festivals in the future.
This revitalized and reinvigorated district is focused on the success of your business. You couldn’t make a better move!
