Hoboken, NJ - Friday, May 25th, 2018
The 2018 Hoboken Master Plan Reexamination Report and 2018 Land Use Element have been finalized, following nearly a year of public meetings, surveys, and input. The 2018 reports address how Hoboken’s socio-economic characteristics, population, vision, and needs have changed since the 2010 Master Plan Reexamination.
“This new master plan gives the City of Hoboken a clear vision of the future,” said Hoboken Mayor Ravinder S. Bhalla. “I’m excited about what’s next for our city, particularly in the areas of housing affordability, flood mitigation, and transportation.”
The Master Plan serves as a blueprint for the City, providing guidance to elected officials on what changes residents want to see in the long- and short-term.
“The 2010 Reexamination was drafted at the height of the Great Recession and before Hoboken endured Superstorm Sandy,” said Community Development Director Brandy Forbes. “Hoboken has come a long way since then, and thanks to all of the public comments, our new priorities reflect that change.”
The Master Plan addresses five main themes with a range of recommendations, including:
A Complete Neighborhood
A City of Connected Places
Becoming a Sustainable and Resilient City
An Engaged and Efficient Partner
The Planning Board will hold a public hearing to consider the 2018 Master Plan Reexamination Report and the 2018 Land Use Element at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, June 11that the Multi-Service Center, located at 124 Grand Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030.
