Hoboken botches Church Square Park (again)
Hoboken goes back on Church Square Park Promises
Over the last two days a crew was ripping out old shrubbery and planting new landscaping in a section of Church Square Park that is supposed to be part of the new refurbished playground equipment.
Over a year a go, the city promised to replace the old dilapidated equipment and replace it with new “green” playground structures as well as expand the area for swings and include the addition of picnic tables.
Last May, Project Play turned over a $50,000 check to Mayor Dawn Zimmer and the City of Hoboken to purchase new equipment, and as you may recall – the city council also passed an ordinance in 2008 requiring any and all park changes require public input and approval. So much for that…
Did the city use Project Play’s money for unauthorized landscaping with the intention of not putting in new equipment or picnic tables? Misuse of funds?
What, is Jon Corzine running things around here?
