BREAKING: Mayor Zimmer announces City wins legal case to buy Southwest One Acre Park

BREAKING: At the campaign launch tonight at Little Town, Mayor Dawn Zimmer announced the City won the right to purchase the one acre of land in the southwest.

The victory means a years long fight and reason for entering Hoboken politics by Mayor Zimmer will be another win for Hoboken as the City enters a full blown election.

A crowd of 125 greeted the news with thunderous applause.

Mayor Zimmer thanked Freeholder Anthony Romano who aided the process reprogramming a $3 million county grant directed to the cost of Hoboken's first Southwest Park.

Romano was in attendance to receive the mayor's thanks.

Correction: The County grant is $3 million not $2 million as posted at full gallop at the event last night.
The cost for the purchase is under $3 million so some funds will be available for a park design.
