Northwest Redevelopment Plan on tap @ 7:00 in City Council

 Some items of interest tonight at the unofficial end of summer in tonight's council meeting. There's an amendment for referral to the Planning Board on the Northwest Redevelopment Plan. The area has generated a lot of interest in recent months on what is possible in that area of town. (Don't have anything to offer in way of background.)

It appears the independent good idea approach is being succeeded with a holistic Administration approach. How one views the two is entirely up to you.

Full agenda is here:

Smaller segments of the meeting are here:

You gotta have Park(ing), Washington St. and Sinatra Dr. overhaul

City of Hoboken announces:


The City of Hoboken invites members of the community to three public meetings in the coming weeks regarding the Parking Master Plan, Sinatra Drive redesign, and Washington Street redesign. All meetings will be held from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Multi Service Center, located at 124 Grand Street.

For those who are unable to attend, meeting materials will be available on the project websites following the meetings.

Talking Ed Note: The largest changes in Hoboken parking regs. in many years are likely on tap so the Parking meeting is pretty important. So too, the Sinatra Drive and Washington Street upgrades under discussion.

But are there any meetings possible other than at the Multi Service Center downtown? 
For meetings of this import, the City of Hoboken should record and make available the public discussion if at all possible. After all, this is the Age of the Internets.

Anyone in City Hall with this iPhone 5 thingy and one of these?
