Volume IV - Issue 2 - Fall 2010
I am pleased to announce that since our last publication, the Urban Enterprise Program has received a reprieve and is not one of the programs that have been slashed from the New Jersey State Budget. The entire UEZ staff would like to thank each and every one of you for your support in helping us salvage this great program for another year. If not for your efforts in letter writing and contacting our respective legislators, we do not honestly know what would have happened to this program. It was through the team efforts of all 37 UEZ municipalities and the UEZ businesses that spoke at various budget hearings that we believe made the difference in keeping this very successful program alive. Some businesses also hired lobbyists and we believe that played an important part in keeping this program on the minds of our legislators.

Volume IV - Issue 1 - Spring 2010
Since our last publication the State of New Jersey has undergone many changes. First we elected a new Governor as CEO of the State of New Jersey and with the new administration many budgetary cuts and political changes have adversely affected the Urban Enterprise Zones throughout the state and here in Paterson. Secondly, newly elected Governor Chris Christie is considering the termination of the Urban Enterprise Zone Program, which would have a tremendous negative impact on the economic vitality of this city and its local businesses.

Volume III - Issue 3 - Fall 2009

The UEZ has been very busy over the summer months. We are proud to announce that we have 35 new businesses that have signed up for the Urban Enterprise Zone Program. We welcome all of them into our family of UEZ businesses and wish them much success in the coming years.

Volume III - Issue 1 - Spring 2009

Paterson continues to be at the forefront with Governor Corzine's "Green" initiatives with the new solar powered street signs that can be seen around the city. As a result of our solar powered street sign initiatives, we are proud to announce that the City of Paterson and the UEZ are one of five recipients of the "Passaic County Green Building Design Award" for 2009.

Volume II - Issue 2 - Fall 2008

The "Home Depot" opened in July and we welcome them to the zone. It was a long time coming but patience prevailed. The store is fantastic and if you haven't already visited them, make it a point to stop by and browse. The UEZ is thrilled to have them in Paterson and in the zone. They have hired many of our residents which has been a great help to our City. They have a great location on Route 20 near the Fairlawn and Hawthorne borders!

Volume II - Issue 1 - Spring 2008

We also purchased and installed "Victorian" Light Poles on Market Street to complement those on Main Street. In the near future, those same poles will be installed on Memorial Drive, Broadway and West Broadway. The Victorian style pole was picked out from an old picture of Paterson in the early 1900's. It is a custom pole that is now actually called the "Paterson Pole" by the vendor and is featured in their catalog.

Volume I - Issue 2 - Summer 2007

Paterson UEZ in partnership with St. Joseph's Hospital will begin to see construction of a new pocket park across from St. Joseph's Hospital on Main Street.

Volume I - Issue 1 - Fall 2006

With the warm weather around the corner we encourage everyone to visit the "St. Joseph's Plaza" across from St. Joseph's Hospital. Construction is complete on this "pocket park" and it is a beauty. In partnership with the hospital, the Urban Zone was able to assist with the design of the park.
