An effort to add an acre of new green space to one of Hoboken’s growing neighborhoods is slated to take a step forward early next month.
The city recently acquired about an acre of land next to an existing greenspace and has awarded a contract to add a temporary playground, basketball courts, and community gardens at the space.
A legal settlement permitting the city to purchase an acre of land in exchange for allowing greater development density at properties owned by Academy Bus will be debated, along with an $8.1 million bond ordinance that would fund the deal.
Hoboken just took a big step towards acquiring a parking lot that they wish to convert into open space.
Hoboken’s city council took what should be their final step towards creating a new park near the city’s southwest border last week, indicating that the end might finally be near for a project that has traveled down a long and winding road.
