Earth Day Mini Fair 2021
Bringing Hudson County Together
Saturday April 24th
11:00am – 3:00pm
At Jersey City Lincoln Park
West Side Avenue Entrance
JERSEY CITY , NJ --Hudson County Improvement Authority otherwise known as HCIA is having its Earth Day Mini Fair this weekend, April 24th. Stop by to learn more about HCIA and their goals and projects to build a cleaner and more sustainable future for Hudson County residents!
HCIA is hopeful the communities of Hudson County will join together on Earth Day and beyond to promote awareness, education and engagement in the many services and projects Hudson County has to offer its residents. Norman Guerra, who has been the County Executive Director for more than sixteen years, reminds us about the planning and energy division, solar projects, and the building of Hudson County’s first public golf course, and more exciting projects on the way! The HCIA also has been participating in the Task Force for Vaccinations.
Amanda Nesheiwat, Deputy Director of Sustainability & Community Outreach at HCIA based in Jersey City, mentioned in an interview with NJ NEWS Jersey.com, “Earth Day is encouraging youth to get involved in their community and understanding the importance of Earth Day but in their own way! Earth Day has always been an important day for the HCIA because it’s main mission is to spread awareness about how to protect our planet and be a resource for communities working on achieving their environmental goals.”
During the Earth Day Mini Fair Event on Saturday, a wealth of information and activities will be offered to help community members learn more about recycling and composting, shredding and hazardous waste events, and many community programs to assist in making a difference environmentally in our homes as well as out in the community. HCIA’s Earth Day event will also provide information and resources regarding county health services and cultural affairs. Ms. Nesheiwat reminds us, “This year’s Earth Day theme recognizes the importance of working together, whether it’s fighting Covid-19 or fighting climate change! We can solve issues when we work together!”
Normally, the HCIA has always sponsored an Earth Day Fair and 5k Road Race in Liberty State Park but last year the fair had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. Instead for this year’s Earth Day, it will be a Mini Fair at the Jersey City Lincoln Park. The HCIA is still looking forward to planning a 5k road race to be held in the fall so stay tuned! The HCIA is always available to answer questions about “going green” from municipalities, residents, and businesses!
Again, join us Saturday April 24th for a successful Earth Day celebration!
Check out the HCIA website and make sure to enjoy a beautiful day outside at Jersey City Lincoln Park on Earth Day!!!!

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ -- While many commercial real estate experts predict downward trends in the office market due to COVID-19, the owners of Turnpike Plaza, a 100,000 square foot office complex in East Brunswick, NJ are prepared for a surge in demand because of active, safety-first measures and a shift towards shorter commutes.
“Companies are looking for office space focused on their tenants’ safety, owned by proactive landlords in locations easily accessible to their executive’s suburban homes,” said Stuart Davis, Broker owner of Davis Commercial, representing Turnpike Plaza. “Turnpike Plaza offers all that and more.”
Business publications like Bloomberg News, are reporting large banks and other corporations are looking toward the suburbs to house employees in spaces that can accommodate the new social distancing guidelines. This requires much more space for far fewer employees.
“We’re confident the marketplace will appreciate the policies we have implemented and construction we have done to create a safe and inviting workplace in the face of this pandemic,” said Paul Donnolo, owner of SilverTree. “Our hands-on management, professional daily cleaning, ample and easily accessible parking and a host of other amenities have been well-received by our tenants.”
Rob Kessler, president of Offices: Furniture and Design Solutions, and a tenant in Turnpike Plaza building, said he appreciates what the ownership has accomplished. “The owners have always been extremely responsive and supportive to our business,” Kessler said. “In response to Covid-19, the management team has implemented a number of protocols at Turnpike Plaza helping myself and my staff to feel good about coming back to the office.”
Conveniently located just off Exit 9 of the NJ turnpike in East Brunswick, Donnolo and his family have always taken a hands-on approach to managing their assets, and have moved quickly to implement policies and add amenities which will keep the tenants safe and productive.
“We are prioritizing personal spaces, implementing behavioral signage and ensuring a safe and clean shared work environment,” Donnolo said. He pointed out that all windowed offices have individually-controlled, through-the-wall HVAC systems that continuously condition fresh outside air while air in interior spaces are conditioned by powerful rooftop units.
In addition, they have installed no-touch faucets, hand sanitizers throughout the building, a designated COVID-19 workplace coordinator, and they are enforcing social distancing and face coverings in all public spaces.
“The closely-held family ownership is evident throughout,” said Brian Walsh, Broker-Associate at Davis Commercial. “The fact that the family maintains an office in the building assures that all safety measures are being implemented and monitored daily.
“Despite the slowdown in office leasing, Turnpike Plaza offers amenities that are going to be in high demand in the new normal,” Walsh added. “By providing flexible leases, easily divisible spaces and an abundance of free parking, we will meet the new demands of all size businesses, whether local or national.”
More employees will be driving to work, and most urban areas can’t offer parking for their employees. Other features to protect tenant safety include daily cleaning in all spaces by professional crews wearing protective gear, increased depth, scope and frequency of enhanced cleaning and sanitization, displaying behavioral signs for enhanced safety and convex mirrors to reduce blind spots in the building.
“We’ve also installed automatic stair tower door openers to reduce touch points, created an outside meeting area on the top floor of the parking deck, and created an individual suite mail exchange,” Donnolo added.
