The Hoboken City Council will host a Special City Council meeting on Wednesday, January 22 at 7:00 pm to consider an amendment to the Hoboken Yard Redevelopment Plan. If the amendment is adopted on first reading, it will be considered on second reading at the next regularly scheduled City Council meeting.
The Hoboken Yard Redevelopment Plan, which was originally adopted by the Hoboken City Council in 2014, provided a plan vision and framework for transit-oriented development in the area adjacent to the New Jersey Transit Rail Yard. The proposed amendment recognizes the proposed location of the Rebuild by Design flood protection structure, which will lie within the redevelopment area. The proposed amendment, which provides for less overall development as compared to the 2014 plan, can be found in draft format by clicking here.
