Councilwoman Jen Giattino: "Loading Zones Coming To A Street Near You!"

Official release:


Dear friends and neighbors - 

I wanted to update you on the Loading Zone Pilot Program that I introduced to temporarily establish curbside loading zones at the locations below.  The goals of the PILOT program are to reduce parking in crosswalks, facilitate safe and orderly curbside loading in predominately residential areas, and improve street safety for all users.  

According to our signal and traffic department, they will begin installing the loading zone signs on Monday.  The temporary loading zones will be available between 8am-6pm, Monday through Saturday.  This program will go for 180-days during which time the Parking and Transportation Department will be evaluating the effectiveness of the program.  To the extent that the program is considered successful, we will look to design and implement a program for the rest of the city.

Sign of the Times: And the home of....

New York Waterway?

Beautiful skies are the backdrop to the American flag flying with the
NY Waterway flag below at the former Union Dry Dock site earlier today.

Wednesday night Stevens Institue hosted the Army Corps of Engineers for a hearing on the determination of the former Union Dry Dock hosting operations for New York Waterway.

Hoboken residents joined local officials in urging another solution foregoing refueling operations at the location but the likelihood from your friendly neighborhood Horsey says a decision is likely coming sooner than later.

Once it does, Hoboken's historical character of sea vessels coming and going will more likely than not be preserved with NY Waterway operating on the Mile Square City shores.

Talking Ed Note: Hudson County View covered the almost four-hour hearing filing its video/report. 

A local heckler decided it was a good time to take their foaming marching orders from the "No Borders' nihilist Left and shout at Freeholder Anthony Romano about Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) work/funding efforts in the county. Maybe MS-13, reportedly taken hold in the area should come down the hill and lop off his head and those stupidly applauding.
