Hoboken, NJ - Tuesday, June 12th, 2018

The City of Hoboken is calling on all Hoboken dog owners to participate in a survey about dog runs. The results will help inform the City about what residents want out of the designs and functions of a future dog park, to be located at 2nd & Hudson.Residents have until June 18 to submit their responses here.“This is one of many initiatives my Administration is pursuing to reduce the amount of pet waste on our sidewalks.  I encourage every dog owner to take a moment provide your input,” said Hoboken Mayor Ravi S. Bhalla. “Let us know what you need for your pets that you’re not getting from the other locations.”The survey asks questions about what residents like and don’t like about existing dog runs and how frequently dog owners use the parks, among other topics.Following the results of the survey, a public meeting will take place June 21 with a public hearing on June 25. The plans for the dog run will go before the City Council for approval on July 11.
