Public Meeting to be Held for Veterans Housing & American Legion Flood Protection ProjectTweet
Hoboken, NJ - Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016
The City of Hoboken invites residents to a community meeting scheduled for February 29, 2016 at 6:30 pm at the American Legion Post 107 located at 308 Second Street. The purpose of the meeting is to gather community feedback on a proposed development on the American Legion site that would create housing space for homeless veterans and protect the American Legion from future flooding by moving their operations to the second floor. The American Legion, in partnership with Monarch Housing, Hoboken Shelter, and the City of Hoboken, was awarded six housing vouchers for homeless veterans in 2015. The Hoboken Shelter is committed to providing support services to homeless veterans through their supportive housing program. Mayor Dawn Zimmer and County Executive Thomas DeGise have signed on to the Mayors Challenge to End Veterans Homelessness issued by First Lady Michelle Obama in 2014.
The American Legion is preparing the application to be heard at an upcoming Zoning Board hearing.
