Hoboken’s Second Ward Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher released her latest newsletter this afternoon. The Councilwoman encourages residents to attend two, virtual community meetings this week. Tonight’s meeting focuses on the redevelopment of the Neumann Leathers Building site, while Wednesday night’s meeting is about the Marshall Street Substation.
- Tonight 3/8 at 7pm – a virtual public meeting for the rehabilitation and redevelopment of the Neumann Leather building. The architect John Nastasi will be presenting revised plans for what is a transformative project. To watch / join: via City website, YouTube, Facebook, or Zoom.
- Wednesday Night 3/10 at 7pm – a virtual public meeting for what is known as the “Marshall Street Substation” site located at 2nd and Marshall. In 2017 as part of the agreement for PSE&G’s new substation next to Shop Rite, PSE&G vacated its former site and gave the site to the city of Hoboken. This meeting will be to discuss potential plans for this site. Rutgers did an Alternative Analysis report last year that you can find and review here. Personally, and I know I don’t live in that area, I think the City should incorporate into any plans initial uses as swing space to support the rebuilding of Connors Elementary which is a block away and also to assist in the planned rehabilitation of the HHA. To watch / join: via City website, YouTube, Facebook, or Zoom.
