SW-Park

Final Conceptual Design to be Presented at Public Meeting

All members of the Hoboken community are invited to the third public meeting on the first phase of a Southwest Park. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 4th at 7:00pm in the conference room on the first floor of the Multi Service Center, 124 Grand Street.

Based on community feedback developed from the two prior community meetings and an online survey, the planner hired by the City has developed a final conceptual plan for the first phase of a Southwest Park. The plan for the park also includes stormwater management infrastructure.

“We thank everyone who participated in the community meetings and the over 500 residents who provided feedback through the online survey,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “I look forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting and hope to work with the Council and community to build this park as quickly as possible.”

In October 2013, the City of Hoboken acquired a one acre property bounded by Jackson Street, Observer Highway, Harrison Street, and Paterson Avenue as the first major installment of a new Southwest Park. Starr Whitehouse, a landscape architecture and planning firm with expertise in parks design and green infrastructure for stormwater management, was hired to lead the planning process for the Southwest Park.
