Outstanding Plan Award: Hoboken Green Infrastructure Strategic Plan
The New Jersey chapter of the American Planning Association has recognized the Hoboken Green Infrastructure Strategic Plan with the Outstanding Plan Award. The Green Infrastructure Strategic Plan suggests best management practices (BMP) to reduce storm water runoff through retention (such as rainwater harvesting), infiltration (such as rain gardens) and detention (such as subsurface storage) with focus on individual site characteristics and cost effectiveness. The plan targeted critical areas like public open space and redevelopment areas in the City, as well as emphasized the importance of implementation among the business and residential communities.
Clarke Caton Hintz served on the project team, which also consisted of NJ Transit, EE&K (A Perkins Eastman Company) and The Louis Berger Group. The project was funded by Together North Jersey as part of the Local Demonstration Project program.
