Church Square Park improvement meeting set for next Thursday

City of Hoboken announces:


PUBLIC INVITED TO COMMUNITY MEETING FOR CHURCH SQUARE PARK IMPROVEMENTS

The City of Hoboken invites residents to a community meeting on Thursday, May 17, 2012 to solicit input on the community’s desire for improvements to Church Square Park. The meeting will take place on the 2nd floor of the Hoboken Public Library, located at 500 Park Avenue next to Church Square Park, from 5pm to 8pm.

“Church Square Park is used by so many people for many different purposes, so we want to hear everyone’s ideas on how we can improve the park for our entire community,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

The City will use a portion of a $1.6 million bond for city-wide parks improvements towards improvements at Church Square Park. Funds from the bond were also recently used to renovate playgrounds at Jackson Street Park, Jefferson Street Park, and Legion Park. The Hoboken Family Alliance’s Project Play previously raised $50,000 in private funds for playground improvements which are also being donated towards the Church Square Park project.

The City of Hoboken has hired Suburban Consulting Engineers as a planner to assist in developing a plan for Church Square Park. The planner will be in attendance to solicit public input and will develop a plan following the meeting. That plan will be presented at a public hearing on the 2nd floor of the Hoboken Public Library on June 12 from 5pm to 8pm.
