Hoboken Yards Redevelopment Plan & Washington Street Redesign to be Presented at Special City Council Meeting

Tuesday, Oct 7, 2014


The Hoboken City Council will hold a special meeting on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 7:30pm for the presentation of the Hoboken Yards Redevelopment Plan and the Washington Street redesign conceptual plan. No action will be taken by the Council at the meeting.

Following an extensive community-driven design process that included multiple public meetings and stakeholder groups, the City conducted an updated economic analysis and incorporated post-Sandy flood mitigation measures as well as feedback from the community and the City Council in creating the revisions to the City of Hoboken’s proposed Redevelopment Plan.

In 2012, the City of Hoboken created a draft plan with 2 million square feet of development. The plan being introduced is a revision to that plan and calls for up to 2.3 million square feet of development with LEED Gold incentives.

“There’s been a lot of discussion about this plan over the years,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “In 2008, a prior Administration and NJ Transit proposed a 9 million square foot project featuring a 70-story tower. I strongly opposed that project because it was wrong for Hoboken. Our current proposal is an example of the kind of balanced, smart development that the people of Hoboken both want and deserve.” More >

Friday, Oct 3, 2014


Hudson County Improvement Authority’s Fall Household Hazardous Waste Event will take place on Sunday, October 5 from 9am to 1pm at the Hoboken Municipal Garage, located on Willow Avenue & Observer Highway.

Hazardous wastes are items found in our homes, garages and outdoor sheds that are dangerous to our environment and cannot be disposed of in our everyday trash. For example, pesticides and solvents are dangerous substances that when inhaled or consumed can be life threatening. That is why the HCIA runs its semi-annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program to help residents rid their homes of these materials. More >
