More on the SW redevelopment zone
See North New Jersey blogger touch on the Hoboken redevelopment zones here:
This just isn’t contained to our miniscule town alone.
There is a large segment of the population that does not trust the mayor and the City Council to effectively manage a redevelopment area, especially considering that redevelopment law gives the City Council such sweeping authority.
They worry that the city will abuse its powers, which could lead to high-rise, high-density development, with nothing more than small strips of landscaped land that would pass as parks.
