20723 The next, and what should be the final, meeting will be on Tuesday JULY 26 2011 at 6:00 PM . The Agenda will likely include cross examination of Objectant Expert Lacz, further cross examination of LTACH Expert Keller, and, perhaps the decision vote by the Board.

20492 For those of you who were wondering, the April 28, 2011 Hackensack Zoning Board Special Meeting was cancelled due to lack of quorum.

Last month marked the 2 year anniversary of these special meetings. ProspectAvenueCoalition would like to thank all of the Hackensack residents who have attended each of these meetings and for their tireless support in the opposition to the applicant's request for approval of 14 (or it is really 67=14+53) variances needed to build a 19 story hospital on Prospect and Summit Avenues.

Attached as an anniversary gift is the transcript from the first special meeting (April 15, 2009) and as a bonus also attached is April 29, 2010 transcript.

19829 I noticed something new at the corner of Passaic Street and Summit Avenue - a left turning signal when crossing both ways over Passaic Street. Was the part of the Veterans Administration building parking lot expansion application to mitigate traffic jams in that area? I am not driving around these mean streets during the daytime. Has it helped any? Let us not forget that a similar proposal was made for the intersection at Summit Avenue and Central Avenue by Pineles crew.

19140 Attached is a copy of the Hackensack Zoning Board Special Meeting transcript dated March 3, 2011 re: Bergen Passaic Long Term Acute Care Hospital. I was unable to attend this meeting and the following are from notes from a Prospect Avenue Resident:

The witness, Mr. Lacz, was unruffled and a well spoken gentleman. Then he testified and apparently there are 53 violations in LTACH's building plan. Mr. Basrailian will cross examine Mr. Lacz at next meeting. Mr. Ditkas' questions were excellent, point by point re: statutes, etc. Mr. Lacz did say that given the water table and pressure, most likely other buildings could suffer structural damage w/ the garage digging. If  you get copy of testimony, you can see details. There wasn't any time for audience questions. I think it was a most interesting meeting, and Mr.Lacz has 45 years experience as engineer, architect & planner.
 
Mr. Ditkas is counsel for a Prospect Avenue Resident and Mr. Lacz is their expert witness. Mr. Basrailian is counsel for the applicant, Richard Pineles. I believe there will be an opportunity for the public to question this witness.

During the public session of Bergen Passaic Long Term Acute Care Hospital hearings many residents have voiced their concern over the additional traffic congestion which would be brought to the area if this hospital is built and how there are already unbearable traffic jams near Prospect Avenue and Passaic Street - some of this traffic stemming from the Veterans Health Administration building located at 385 Prospect Avenue which recently made improvements to their ramp entrance/exit on the Prospect Avenue side.

We have noticed some new construction on the expansive front lawn of 385 Prospect Avenue which had previously submitted a proposal to build a parking lot in the front of the building and subsequently was turned down by the Hackensack Zoning Board. We have learnd that the Zoning Board's decision was overturned in court. Now a driveway will be added on Berry Street as an entrance to the parking and an exit driveway will be built on the north end of the property (next to the other 2 driveways).

More congestion for Berry Street.

BERGEN PASSAIC LONG TERM ACUTE CARE HOSPITAL APPLICATION

This from a neighbor living at the World Plaza:

"See attached photos taken Thursday morning Feb 24 2011. After 25 minutes of attempting to back in and pull-in cab first The food delivery truck crashed into the drive way lights/guides damaging the truck and the property of Prospect Heights center. This is not the first time this has happened. In addition, while attempting to pull into the driveway the truck blocked traffic preventing cars on Prospect ave to pass."

The truck which will make the food and other deliveries to the Bergen Passaic Long Term Acute Care Hospital will be a 44 foot tractor trailer. Deliveries will be made approximately twice a week. Traffic will be stopped in both directions so the tractor trailer can back into the hospital driveway. Don't forget their kind proposal to take away 4 street parking spaces in front of the hospital so the truck could more easily make this manuever.

Plane on loan to Bergen Prosecutor's Office lands on Route 80 in Hackensack Monday, January 31, 2011

Last updated: Monday January 31, 2011, 9:28 PM

A small plane on loan to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s office made an emergency landing on Route 80 Monday, surprising drivers and other observers as it taxied down the eastbound express lanes near exit 66.

There were no reports of injuries in the afternoon mishap involving the white Tecnam P92 Eaglet, which had a certified flight instructor at the controls and a detective with the prosecutor’s office on board. The two were on a “training mission,” according to Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli, when the pilot decided to undertake what he termed “a controlled landing” because of water in the fuel line.

Molinelli said pilot James Mancini, “chose to bring it down because he was not certain that he would be able to return it to the airport.” The prosecutor said the plane was “under power” at the time.
Just after 3 p.m. the plane with the Bergen County seal on its tail could be seen sitting in the right lane of the express lanes as it was hoisted onto a flatbed truck. It was driven away at about 4 p.m. with a state police escort, leaving the highway at Exit 65.

The single engine plane is registered to the Sheriff’s Association of Texas. A spokesman for the association said it is owned by the Department of Justice and on loan to the prosecutor as “a cooperative lower-cost aviation asset for law enforcement.” Molinelli said his office acquired the plane and became part of the DOJ program about two years ago.
The light sport aircraft was en route to Teterboro Airport when the pilot reported a “rough-running engine” to controllers, said FAA spokesperson Arlene Salac. She said the agency’s Flight Standards District Office in Teterboro will investigate the cause of the emergency landing.

“They will interview the pilot and inspect the aircraft to see what type of mechanical problem may have led to the rough-running engine,” she said. A report will be issued when the investigation is completed, she said.

State Police from the Totowa barracks closed down the two eastbound express lanes after getting a call from Teterboro Airport that the plane was gong to land on Route 80, said State Police Sgt. Julian Castellanos.

“It worked out well,” he added.

Drivers and other witnesses in nearby buildings did a double take as the plane rolled down the highway and came to rest.
Mary Ellen Flaherty of Franklin Lakes was heading home on Route 80 westbound when she looked to the left and saw the plane moving down the highway’s express lanes in the opposite direction.

“I was day dreaming and just from my peripheral vision I saw the wing of a plane,” said Flaherty, who was heading home after applying for a passport at the courthouse. “I though it was a truck with a wing.”
Flaherty said that as she passed the plane, she and other drivers slowed to try and see what had happened. With no crash and no fire, she figured it landed safely.

Jim Plavin, manager of Projection Design, a company that sells projectors for flight simulators, said he was sitting in his office overlooking Route 80 when he saw a small plane pass by among cars on the eastbound lanes.
“All I see from here is the fuselage, so I am thinking some idiot has the plane on a truck,” he said. “I didn’t know it was an emergency landing in progress.”

About 20 minutes later, the area was flooded with police and emergency vehicles, he said.
The good news is that nobody got hurt,” he said. “I am sure there were some scary moments for whoever was behind the stick.”

Plavin, whose office is on North Street in Teterboro, said he often sees a lot of aircraft traffic from his office.
“But usually it’s in the air,” he said. “I bet I could sit here for another 25 years and not see this again.”
The plane has been in use as a law enforcement and homeland security resource since the county prosecutor’s office was recruited by the justice department to be part of the aviation program.

It’s been put to use both in and outside the county for “a lot of major crime investigations,” and has assisted, for example, in violent crimes and tracking missing persons. Law enforcement officials in the county know when the plane is in operation, the prosecutor said, and how to contact it. When an incident occurs on the ground, such as a bank robbery “they can contact the plane immediately,” he explained.

“This plane has been enormously successful over the last two years in assisting law enforcement in North Jersey,” he added.
Molinelli said the plane goes up most days, weather permitting. He said it's very economical, runs on automobile fuel, and costs about $50 an hour to operate - manpower included. He said forfeiture funds and not taxpayer dollars pay for its operation.

Mancini, a retired commercial airline pilot, is a part-time employee with the prosecutor’s office, who Molinelli said he brought in as a flight safety instructor when the office acquired the plane from the justice department and began the program. He said he also has detectives with the office who are pilots.

The prosecutor said his office’s time in the program is winding down, and he believes the plane is set to be returned in April. He said he looked in to buying a slightly larger plane – a twin engine – with seized assets but in recent weeks decided against it.

“Based upon today’s climate, the economy, I opted not to do it,” he said.

The sheriff’s association spokesman said the association was notified of the emergency landing by the prosecutors office at around 3:20 p.m. In addition to the state police, Port Authority Police and other officers were at the scene.

I don't think the negative reaction would be the same if it were a helicopter. Plane is a complete joke. Has no useful purpose.

2. Tuesday February 1, 2011, 1:42 AM - DreadPirateRoberts says:
Morons... almost every last one of you. Pay attention to the story. The plane was a law enforcement tool (not a private jet) and WAS NOT paid for by the Prosecutor's Office or BC taxpayer money. A little bit of research will show that the fuel costs and maintenance are minimal. We should be praising this pilot for his quick thinking and thanking God that no one got hurt. For those of you who don't think that Bergen County crime warrants this type of necessity, I suggest you spend one day at the Courthouse watching some trials. The Governor would be wise to reappoint someone with as much guts and guile as Molinelli. And for your information the Prosecutors Office is a Constitutional Office, and as the County Executive, Kathe Donovan doesn't have the authority to direct it to do anything...

3. Tuesday February 1, 2011, 1:33 AM - policywonkette says:
Helicopter is much more versatile, can land almost anywhere in a vertical descent, any baseball field, any parking lot. A plane is just dumb, dangerous and largely unnecessary. Wasted tax dollars at the county level.

I guess Donovan needs to call the Prosecutor on the carpet

5. Monday January 31, 2011, 10:53 PM - photostation says:
The plane is a DoJ plane registered to a law enforcement agency in TX, on loan to the BCPO. That being said, it is one of the lowest costing aircraft to operate (about $36/hour for the fuel compared to a helicopter which can run upwards of $1,500/hr.). All Bergen County taxpayers shell out for (one can assume) is the fuel, storage, insurance and maintenance. Since it is an U.S. Gov't-owned plane it is not charged for landing fees...However, the Civil Air Patrol/USAF Auxiliary can help any municipality with professionally trained VOLUNTEER pilots and flight crew for a fraction of the above costs.

You know, now that I think about it maybe police planes aren't a bad idea. Just think, how about a squadron of P-51 "Mustangs" based at Teterboro. There's still quite a few around and shouldn't be too expensive to buy. Then instead of high-speed chasing the bad guys down the highways they can just "roll in hot" and strafe 'em! Yeah, turn a few dirtbags cars into twisted balls of flaming wreckage and they'll get the idea! And while we're at it, how about some 105mm howitzers. Instead of raiding a drug den they can drop a few shells on it from a safe distance! You could probably get a few tanks too, but then the chiefs will probably start packing ivory handled revolvers and who knows where THAT could lead to? Wow, I'd better stop....

This plane is for drug interdiction at the border. Wait a second, that is for the DEA. The plane is so they can fly over Teaneck and look for marijuana farms. Can't do that from the ground. Wait a second. Yes you can. The plane is for transporting prisoners. Wait a second, that's what the US Marshall's are for. The plane must be for getting to Fantasy Island. Yeah, that's the ticket, Fantasy Island.

11. Monday January 31, 2011, 8:33 PM - nomorenjcorruption says:
Dear Governor Christie, You need to get rid of all of the county prosecutor's offices and put them under the control of the attorney general. This plane is a clear cut example of how taxpayer's money is being inappropriately used. I'm sorry to say it, but this plane making an emergency landing is a good thing. Taxpayers are waking up to the wasteful spending at the Prosecutor's office. This agency needs some financial oversight.

12. Monday January 31, 2011, 8:13 PM - nomorenjcorruption says:
Record- You should file an OPRA request and find out how much this plane costs to operate. Pilots salary, fuel, etc.

13. Monday January 31, 2011, 8:10 PM - nomorenjcorruption says:
The two biggest jokes in the Bergen County Law Enforcement community are the Prosecutor's Office plane and the appointment of the Palisades Park Chief. This plane is a complete waste of money. Cops are being laid off and the Prosecutor's Office has the nerve to fly around in this useless plane. How many criminals have been apprehended because of this plane? I betcha the answer is a big goose egg.

The prosecuters office has to answer the basic questions here. Why do they need a light plane? It seems to me nothing more than a luxury item. I guess the trips to Trenton and Atlantic City are too long to require that they drive.

Can't believe Republican Gov. Christie approved this as Prosecutors boss, then again when he was US Attorney, he only stayed at the best- the Four Seasons (and Michele Brown) and he did say he would do the same as Governor, spare no expense for Prosecution, especially political prosecution. Way to go Republicans!!! make sure you cut the schools more too....

22. Monday January 31, 2011, 6:10 PM - freedomradio says:
Sure the Justice Department needs the plane for drug trafficking. That's why there were so many police there for one plane. To make sure nobody got close enough to investigate.

23. Monday January 31, 2011, 6:04 PM - ROTORMAN says:
Good landing, especially in 55mph traffic! Have to hand it to the guy. Now the good stuff begins with all the questions. I don't envy him.

24. Monday January 31, 2011, 5:59 PM - hillman says:
So, it's registered to Texas sheriffs, owned by the DOJ and used by the Bergen county Prosecuter. Sounds alot like money laundering schemes. Can anyone say RICO? I mean, ok, I understand this is a huge county and a plane would help get across it but the apparent only places to land are Rt. 80 and maybe the Darlington golf course. Or does Molinelli parachute when he gets to his destination? Menendez, Lautenburg, maybe it's time to ask DOJ how many of these things are on loan and to whom?

25. Monday January 31, 2011, 5:48 PM - klecko says:

#17111 @elizabeth - I heard thru the grapevine that objector counsel who represents a Prospect Avenue resident will tonight bring forth their own experts.

Your intel may be right. Yesterday afternoon a group of concerned residents were to be photographed for a newspaper article in front of 329 Prospect Avenue, the proposed LTACH site. I do know that a number of Hackensack residents have called and spoken with a reporter from The Record for this article.
