Public Hearing to be Held for Sustainability Element
of Hoboken Master Plan
The Hoboken Planning Board will hold a public hearing on the adoption of the Green Building and Environmental Sustainability Element of the Hoboken Master Plan at its regular meeting on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at 7:00pm in the ground floor conference room of Hoboken City Hall, 94 Washington Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030.
The City of Hoboken has been actively involved in sustainability efforts for nearly a decade, achieving Bronze certification from Sustainable Jersey, in 2011 and Silver certification in 2017. Sustainability has been promoted through several recent and current efforts that address climate adaptation, flood mitigation, public and environmental health, Green Building, and non-vehicular transportation. The draft Green Building & Environmental Sustainability Element (“Sustainability Element”) discusses these efforts and outlines goals, strategies, and actions to make Hoboken a more sustainable and resilient City.

Hard copies are available for public inspection at the Hoboken Planning Board Office during regular business hours of 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM Monday through Friday, with the exception of holidays.
