City of Hoboken reminder...

REMINDER: MAYOR ZIMMER TO HOLD COMMUNITY MEETING ON NEWARK STREET SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS TONIGHT

Mayor Dawn Zimmer and Transportation and Parking Director Ian Sacs will hold a community meeting this evening, July 19 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at the Multi-Service Center124 Grand Street, to involve residents in the process of improving safety along Newark Street.

This is part of the Administration’s efforts to involve the community’s ideas and creativity at the beginning, rather than the end, of the design process.

The City of Hoboken has $240,000 in federal funding for improving safety along Newark Street between River Street and Washington Street. The funding, which was secured by Senator Robert Menendez, was awarded in 2009, and due to the time-sensitive nature of the funds, community input is critical to moving forward with the project.

Additional public meetings are also scheduled to discuss other projects.

On  Tuesday, August 3rd from 4:30 to 7:30 pm, Mayor Zimmer, Director Sacs, and consultants from The RBA Group will host a "Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan Public Visioning Meeting."

On Tuesday, August 17th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, Mayor Zimmer and Director Sacs will host an "Observer Highway Safety Re-Design Community Workshop."

"Through these initiatives, we have the opportunity to make exciting improvements to our City that will ease congestion and traffic problems while making our streets more inviting and safer for pedestrians and cyclists," said Mayor Zimmer. "Community feedback is critical to the success of these projects, so I urge residents to come out and provide their input."
