City Council President Jen Giattino: "Help Continue to Improve Pedestrian Safety in Our Neighborhood"

Official release:



Hello Friends and Neighbors,

I am looking for your input to continue to make our neighborhood more safe for everyone, especially pedestrians. 

Last year, after a warrant study, I had a stop sign installed on 6th and Clinton Sts. This intersection has a bus stop and school which lends itself to vehicle/pedestrian conflict.

A warrant study is underway on 2nd and Bloomfield Sts. I am waiting for the results.

After advocating for pedestrian safety improvements on 7th and Clinton Sts. which has the parking lot for ACME, I am pleased that a resolution was passed at last week’s council meeting for a major overhaul of this intersection.  This will include corner bump-outs, a rain garden to help with drainage, and long-lasting thermoplastic for all markings (crosswalks and on-street signage).
Planned improvements for 7th and Clinton Sts:
Also, did you know that May is National Historic Preservation month?  Our Hoboken Historic Preservation Commission has started a campaign called This Place Matters, identifying places across Hoboken that have been around for a long time and matter most to our community.  If you have any suggestions, please email me.  I personally think that all of Hoboken matters.
Please email me any intersection that you have concerns with so we can continue to make safety improvements to our neighborhood.
