LCOR/NJ Transit will be holding a community meeting Thursday, February 21 at 7pm, at the Elks in Hoboken regarding the Hoboken Terminal & Rail Yard.Following Sandy, LCOR/NJ Transit had taken time to reevaluate how this project can potentially help protect Hoboken from future weather-related events, and this meeting will highlight some of their findings. The purpose of this community meeting is to discuss how, at no cost to the city, the Hoboken Terminal & Rail Yard project can aid the city in weather related improvements and to seek additional public feedback to supplement responses from previous outreach efforts.
Note: This is the NJT Authority making a pitch to Hoboken Residents. They have made several visionary renderings for this project in the past. The latest round included substantial commercial and residential development but just a vision and not a real redevelopment plan. An actual detailed redevelopment plan was proposed the City of Hoboken Planning Board and is being reviewed by the City Council of Hoboken that has less density, especially residential.
