Western Edge meeting 2/13
The meeting that was bumped late last year is taking place Wednesday at 7pm. City Hall council chambers.
For those wondering what happened at this meeting that was purposely scheduled to conflict with last night’s city hall marathon. From a Hoboken411 reader.
“I attended the meeting last night along with 7 other concerned citizens, three representatives from Philips Price Shapiro, one stenographer, and an architect for URSA. Two meetings were scheduled for the same room: The Western Edge and Alcolholics Anonomous. AA won.
Curiously, the man who guards the building seemed to know more that we did: he informed us that we are scheduled, again, in January. Does Fred Bado know about this upcoming meeting? This was a waste of time and money.
$$$: Philips Price Shapiro
0: Hoboken citizens”
Another example that hardly anyone reads the paper anymore, tonight’s Western Edge Redevelopment Plan “community meeting” is scheduled for tonight at 7pm (same time as the final budget workshop.) The city needs to add 411 to the list of media outlets they send these notices out, but who can bet that’ll never happen?
Peter Cunningham sent this email out today:
“Friends and Neighbors,
I am not sure who saw this supposed advertisement in the paper regarding a meeting THIS EVENING on the Western Edge Redevelopment Plan, but apparently it was noticed in the Reporter as a community meeting. It’s a 5th ward project and I am unaware of it.
What I do know is that I have a special council meeting on the public works garage at 6pm, budget workshop at 7pm and a Parks Subcommittee meeting at 5:15. Then of course, we have a weather condition!
This is disappointing to hear at the 11th hour. I will work to see if this meeting can be postponed to after the holidays. But absent that, I want you to know that it’s at…
