City to host second public meeting for Southwest Park

City of Hoboken announces:


PUBLIC INVITED TO 2ND COMMUNITY MEETING FOR SOUTHWEST PARK

One of Four Southwest Park Design Concepts to be Presented at Public Meeting

All members of the Hoboken community are invited to the second public meeting to provide input on the planning of the first phase of a Southwest Park. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 28 at 7:00pm at the Multi Service Center, 124 Grant Street.

Four design concepts, developed based on input from the first community meeting and an online survey, will be presented for feedback from the community. The meeting will include a presentation regarding stormwater management.

Based on community input, a third public meeting will be held at a later date to present an updated design concept.

In October 2013, the City of Hoboken acquired a one acre property bounded by Jackson Street, Observer Highway, Harrison Street, and Paterson Avenue as the first major installment of a new Southwest Park. Starr Whitehouse, a landscape architecture and planning firm with expertise in parks design and green infrastructure for stormwater management, has been hired to lead the planning process for the Southwest Park.
