BREAKING: COUNTY FREEHOLDERS VOTE 5-0-1 TO UPHOLD PLANNING BOARD DENYING MONARCH PROJECT




After two hours of deliberations and hearing from dozens of Hoboken residents, the Hudson County Board of Freeholders finally weighed in voting to uphold its Planning Board in a 5-0-1 vote.

With over 125 residents in attendance but some departing on a break, the vote in the end was anti-climatic as the weight of residents and county attorneys all agreed asking the Hudson County Planning Board application by Ironstate be denied.

Previously, the County Planning Board voted 5-2 to deny the Monarch project application to build two towers east of the Hudson Tea Building.

The project already in the courts is likely to continue on that front.
