Mayor Zimmer sounds alarm on legislation giving zoning override for Stevens on the waterfront

In a letter to Hoboken's senate representative Brian Stack, Mayor Dawn Zimmer sounds the alarm on legislation on the table in the NJ Senate allowing private colleges to bypass local zoning rules in construction.

This legislation if passed in the Senate, Assembly and signed into law would allow Stevens to build a tower on their property near Sinatra park as big on the Hudson as the one NJ Transit or the Rockefeller Group have proposed.





Avoiding a huge tower on the Hudson River waterfront is an objective of Mayor Zimmer opposing legislation that would allow Stevens to bypass local zoning rules on their property including one on the Hudson River.  Above, she's battled to protect Hoboken's southern flank from NJ Transit.
