Ever since Amazon — the on-line retailer headquartered in Seattle — announced in September that it’s seeking requests for proposals (RFPs) for a second corporate headquarters, more than 200 American cities have submitted proposals, including Bayonne and Camden. A construction company that owns land in Secaucus also has entered a proposal for the project. DT Allen, a Midland Park, N.J.-based contracting company, submitted an entry for HQ2 by Secaucus Junction in October, The Secaucus Reporter has learned. Mayor Michael Gonnelli and the company’s vice president, Greg Allen, confirmed last week that the company submitted plans. Titled “A Vision For 15X,” the plan — if chosen — looks to transform 105 acres, from the Secaucus Junction NJ Transit Station to the Hackensack River, into a mixed use, transit-oriented Amazon Global Headquarters Village development.

The HHA oversees the city’s 1,353 units of federally funded low-income and senior citizen housing. The day-to-day operations are managed by a paid executive director and staff, who are overseen by a seven-member volunteer Board of Commissioners. Some of the commissioners are appointed locally and some by the state. All of them answer to the federal department of Housing and Urban Development, but HUD does not oversee day-to-day operations. HHA appointments have been seen, in the past, as politically advantageous, as the HHA units are a frequent stop for those campaigning for local office. However, many have tried to keep politics out of the HHA. The makeup of the board changed last summer when Commissioner Dana Wefer resigned and Commissioner Barbara Reyes took her place in August.
