Thank you for your interest in the Power House Arts District Neighborhood Association (PADNA), servicing the Power House Arts District (the PAD). 

We organized in April 2006 with the following Mission Statement:

• Address the quality of life issues that our developing neighborhood faces everyday.

• Generate excitement and traffic in our dynamic neighborhood.

• Develop a strong supportive community network through community discussions and functions.

PADNA provides a forum for members to report, learn about, consider, take positions on, and act on issues of local concern, including all of Downtown Jersey City and, where appropriate, the entire city and county.

We support historically appropriate and sensitive development consistent with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties and support the development of a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use, vibrant neighborhood with emphasis on the arts, entertainment and culture. We serve as a members' liaison to other organizations, to government agencies and others. PADNA fosters a community among residents of the area.

We get involved and are committed to quality of life of our neighborhood. We regularly contact and discuss with city officials about handling crime waves, zoning issues and traffic problems.

PADNA consists of volunteers, with occasional meetings. We are currently looking for active and engaged volunteers to serve on our board, or participate as members at-large. We need help fulfilling our mission statement and making our little part of Jersey City a vibrant and active community.
