Important Hoboken Zoning Board Meeting

4/14/2008:

Hoboken411 doesn’t normally announce these regularly scheduled Zoning Board of Adjustments meetings, but the one taking place tomorrow is very important.

If you haven’t already read, the City Tax Collector Louie Picardo was sued for improper building of his property at 920 Castle Point. Many felt this was abuse of city power, and violated many conditions that would have had a regular resident hung out to dry (and has).

The more residents that show up for this meeting, the better. Show your support for fair process in town, and put an end to corruption and favoritism in Hoboken.

Meeting is being held at City Hall (basement conference room) April 15, 2008 at 7pm.

[quote comment=”78075″]Charlie, it is the same Tom Foley and I thank you for your comments.

I caution that perception often leads to misguided conclusions and I trust that most recognize the faults of simple conclusions.

I note that the two matters that are before the ZBA tomorrow evening are, in my review, beneficial to the community and it is for that reason that I opted to represent the respective clients. The application with regard to 306-308 Park Avenue seeks a variance to allow the owner of the commercial space (who currently operates Zack’s and, formerly, Ted & Jo’s) to expand the restaurant to the entire commercial space (as opposed to the use of a portion of the space as a laundromat). The second application seeks to develop a four unit building on a lot that is undersized and currently in need of repair. In our planner’s opinion, if the lot was a standard 25×100 (as opposed to 25×75), then the proposed building would not require any variances. Moreover, if approved, the project would eliminate a non-conforming use and structure.

I remain committed to the positive development of Hoboken and continue to encourage open dialogue and community input. It is, in my opinion, necessary to improve our City through “community input.” To stick with my theme a year ago, It’s Our Neighborhood![/quote]

Tom, good for you for ‘outing’ yourself here.

[quote comment=”78122″]I think the other issue on the 300 block of Park Ave is that not only is Zach’s just a block away, but they have a bar on the corner of 3rd (Mario’s) and another on the corner of 4th (O’Neals).[/quote]

That location was a bar for 6 months.
