CASID’s art initiatives have grown out of the belief that creative placemaking contributes to the economic and cultural vitality of neighborhoods. [Read More]

SID Teams up with CDS to clean-up Central

CASID continues to coordinate with Jersey City and Commercial District Services LLC (CDS) to get Central Avenue's streetscape back into shape. The City's limited staff is often busy managing the 43 litter baskets in the district and cannot consistently address the other maintenance needs in the district. As such, Central Avenue businesses and commercial property owners (via their SID program) have hired CDS to help out. CDS will in the district just a few days per month to clean our 133 light poles, remove weeds/ light landscaping, painting our curbs, painting our bus stops, and give our main thoroughfare some much needed TLC. While merchants continue to sweep their own sidewalks, CDS staff will be in the district to do the tough stuff. [See Report]
