Open space is vital, but it seems to me that acquiring open space and improving parks is done poorly, very poorly or worse by the City of Hoboken. There must be a better way.
At the moment, the Northwest Resiliency Park is under construction and delayed by over a year.
The city is expediting the acquisition of Union Dry Dock, an acquisition that is already more expensive than it needed to be: and this is before any sort of park is built there.
The city has swapped some parcels of land to leave the Monarch site vacant and to be used for future open space, but that acquisition is so complicated – it’ll need it’s own page somewhere on this website!
