The Board of Education’s $240 million + proposal has drawn much debate during recently held public forums on the project.  Many people have come out in support of the project, while others, saying there is definitely a need for a new high school, look at the current design and feel it is bloated with too many “unnecessary” items.

The January 25 vote will certainly draw many Hoboken residents to the polls, and that’s something which usually does not happen in an off year election.

Stay tuned.
