Hoboken Residents Sound Off On New York Waterway’s Plans For The Waterfront

Hoboken, NJ - Friday, June 15th, 2018

Hoboken residents are worried about New York Waterway’s plans for the Union Dry Dock property, and they’re making their voices heard in a new video.

They’re encouraging their fellow residents to speak out about the negative impacts of having a ferry repair and refueling station right next to children’s playgrounds and homes. Their simple message: Help us, Governor Murphy.

The Army Corps of Engineers will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, July 18 from 6-9 p.m. in the DeBaun Auditorium at Stevens Institute (24 5th Street). The hearing is a chance for the public to express their views on New York Waterway’s permit application to turn the Union Dry Dock property into a diesel depot.

Residents can also contact Governor Murphy’s office at (609) 292-6000 and ask him to help. New Jersey Transit had previously planned to buy the property and lease it to New York Waterway in an attempt to block Hoboken from purchasing the land at market value through the open process of eminent domain.
