Proposed Ironbound District Expansion Deferred

Ironbound Business Improvement District

The Newark Municipal Council voted on Wednesday, February 14th to defer a decision on the proposed ordinance to expand the Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID).

The proposed ordinance change was introduced and passed on its first reading by the Municipal Council and was undertaken at the request of commercial property owners in the areas being considered for inclusion in the district, including properties on Ferry Street, Market Street, Pacific Street and Raymond Boulevard.

Deferring the decision to a later date will provide additional time to gather more information regarding the impact of the ordinance on properties affected by the proposed expansion. IBID representatives will be available to meet with property owners to communicate details of the revised ordinance before the Municipal Council schedules a second reading.

For more information, please contact the IBID at 973-491-9191973-491-9191 or email
