Mayor Bhalla Announces Public Hearing on Union Dry Dock

Hoboken, NJ - Thursday, June 14th, 2018

Hoboken Mayor Ravinder S. Bhalla announced Thursday that 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.

“For months, we’ve been asking for a chance for Hoboken residents to express their concerns at a time and location convenient for them,” said Bhalla. “Finally, our request has been granted. I now encourage everyone to come out and let your voice be heard. Don’t let New York Waterway silence you.”

Everyone will be given an opportunity to express their views, and any person may speak on their own behalf or be represented by someone else. Each speaker will be limited to three minutes, but lengthier testimonies may be submitted in writing.

The hearing will be reported verbatim, and a transcript will be available to the public at the end of the comment period. The notice of the public hearing can be found here.
