Two Public Meetings Saturday, May 22 2010 on Hoboken Parks

Newly hired Communications person Juan Melli is keeping me busy with these press releases from City Hall. Last night at the City Council meeting there was a lot of talk about transparency from people who truly don't comprehend the meaning of the word . So here is an opportunity for genuinely concerned citizens to voice their opinions directly to Director Jennifer Maier on possible improvements to two local parks. Read below for your voice to be heard.


The public will have an opportunity to comment on proposed improvements planned at two Hoboken parks.

The City will hold two on-site public meetings to discuss improvements to Church Square Park and the park adjacent to the Boys and Girls Club, 123 Jefferson Street.

Church Square Park

Both projects involve replacing existing parks equipment with minor modifications to their layout.

“Residents have asked to be involved in improvements to our parks and public spaces and this is their opportunity to learn more and to provide their feedback,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer.

The meetings, hosted by Environmental Services Director Jennifer Maier, will be held on Saturday, May 22 at 10 am at the Boys and Girls Club park and at 1 pm to discuss improvements to Church Square Park at the site of the existing play area. ◦
