News on Hoboken’s proposed Southwest Redevelopment Plan

Hearings resumed before the Hoboken Planning Board on Wednesday regarding the  city’s proposed Southwest Redevelopment Plan.

While many people want to see parks and other  vibrant development constructed there, some are concerned that a few working  businesses and historic structures may be demolished.
