Community: Reminder: Invite to City-Wide Rebuild by Design Community Workshops - Tonight, April 12, 6:30pm-8:30pm

Dear Horsey,

Members of the public are invited to attend a design focused community meeting for the Rebuild by Design Hudson River project. For the convenience of residents, three meetings will be held at different locations throughout the City including the Multi-Service Center, the Hoboken Housing Authority, and the Elks Club. The meetings will focus on asking the community for input on design elements and amenities that may be incorporated into the project. 

“The ultimate design for this project will reflect the input from the community,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “I know some residents are concerned about how the flood protection measures will look, but these workshops are opportunities to participate in the design process and directly influence the final plan. It is important for residents to know that this is the beginning of the design process and your voices will continue to be a very important part of creating the final flood protection measure.”
