Thank You to the Port Authority for Listening to the Community!!! Welcome to the Future!

Weequahic Park Association's Executive Director, a member of the Good Jobs Clean Air Coalition, thanks the Port Authority for taking Community Input into consideration by cancelling its proposed Secret Air HUB lease deal with Amazon. Hopefully, this will be a model for businesses, government and various industries to follow, when making decisions that will directly affect the community, be they positive or negative.

"We appreciate that the Port Authority, at the community’s urging, held the line rather than chase this lucrative deal with Amazon. While this may not have been the outcome that some of the parties involved had hoped for, it is a just outcome.

This is a win for New Jersey that the Port Authority should be proud of, and ought to hold up as an example for how we set priorities for development projects yet to come. Thank you."
