DESIGN TO BE UNVEILED TO THE PUBLIC FOR NORTHWEST RESILIENCY PARK

Official release:

The City of Hoboken will hold a public meeting on Monday, April 9 at 7 p.m. at Wallace School Cafeteria to discuss the concept design for the Northwest Resiliency Park.

The future park is a key part of Hoboken’s resiliency strategy and will integrate green infrastructure and innovative stormwater management measures to reduce flooding from heavy rain.

In 2017, the City opened a temporary pop-up park at the site. The pop-up park will remain in place until construction of the permanent park begins.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the concept design and receive feedback from the public. No formal action will be taken at the meeting.

Written comments can be submitted online or by emailing northwestpark@hobokennj.gov.
