History
Through the Port Authority’s Local Assistance Program, the City of Hoboken has prepared a redevelopment study for the properties located in the City’s north end . The Port Authority program assists municipalities with professional services for economic initiatives by paying for a consultant to conduct a particular planning projects. The Port Authority notified the City of the award on December 28, 2010 and initiated the public process to request proposals from urban planning professional firms. The contract was awarded to the firm Clarke Caton Hintz and the Planning Board officially adopted a resolution to appoint this firm to conduct the study.

The City Council at its February 18, 2009 meeting adopted a resolution to authorize the Planning Board to conduct a preliminary investigation of the proposed area in northern Hoboken to determine whether it is an area in need of redevelopment. This area includes those parcels north of 14th Street to the Hudson Bergen Light Rail line from the palisades to Park Avenue. The City Administration had been seeking grant sources for such planning studies to offset budgetary constraints and is very excited to see that this project can move forward. The Planning Board will oversee this preliminary investigation planning project.
