Community Invited to Meetings on Northwest Resiliency Park Design and Southwest Park Sculpture




Hoboken, NJ - Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Residents are invited to attend a community meeting to discuss further development of the Northwest Resiliency Park concept design, pictured below, on June 27, 2018 from 7pm to 9pm at the Wallace School Cafeteria, 1100 Willow Avenue (enter on 11th Street between Willow Avenue and Clinton Street). At this meeting, the design team will provide an update on the concept design progress and traffic study, as well as gather community feedback on certain design features.

The City of Hoboken is also seeking public input to guide next steps for providing an interactive sculpture on the Hoboken Southwest Park lawn.  A community meeting will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on June 28, 2018 at the Southwest Park Terrace. In the event of rain, the meeting will be held at the Multi Service Center. The purpose of this meeting is to gather feedback from residents on how and whether to proceed with an interactive sculpture on the Hoboken Southwest Park lawn.  No formal action will be taken.

On April 9, 2018, community members joined the project team at the Wallace School to review the proposed concept design for the Northwest Resiliency Park. The design team used community feedback from this meeting to improve the concept design, which was presented to and approved by the City Council at their public meeting on April 18, 2018.

The concept design was developed through a community planning process, which is summarized in the Design Alternatives and Analysis Report, available at: www.hobokennj.gov/nwpark.

For more information on the concept design and community planning process for the Northwest Resiliency Park, visit: www.hobokennj.gov/nwpark.

Hoboken Southwest Park opened to the public in September 2017, simultaneously providing much needed open space to the underserved southwest corner of the City and functioning as a detention system capable of capturing 200,000 gallons of stormwater. Southwest Park was awarded the Jersey Water Works’ One Water Award in 2017, as well as the United States Green Building Council New Jersey Chapter Award for Innovation and Sustainability Best Practices Award in 2018, both in the Public Projects category.
