Hoboken is moving forward with plans for a new resiliency park at 800 Monroe St., with a public planning process planned for the fall to gain community input. The City acquired the property, initially slated for residential development, through a three-way land swap agreement with the Applied Parties last year.
Earlier today, Tuesday, Aug. 16, Applied Parties began construction on 800 Monroe Street to demolish and dispose of the former groundwater treatment infrastructure in order to install a clean stone cap as an engineering control. Work is anticipated to be completed by mid-September.
Heavy equipment will be utilized, and there will be noise associated with this work. All work will adhere to the City of Hoboken Noise Control Ordinance and will be conducted between the hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays. No weekend work is anticipated.
To minimize dust emissions during demolition and grading, all surfaces will be kept damp through use of a water truck.
The contractors have implemented a rodent baiting protocol to mitigate rodent activity.
Access to the site will be via the existing gate on Monroe Street. On-street parking between 9th Street and the site entrance on both sides of Monroe Street will be restricted during weekday construction.
