Hoboken Historic Preservation Commission to unveil architectural survey


The Hoboken Historic Preservation Commission will unveil an architectural survey at a special meeting on Wednesday, April 3, at the Hoboken Public Library (500 Park Avenue) from 6 to 8 p.m.

This seven-month-long architectural survey was sponsored by the NJ Historic Preservation Office and conducted by AECOM, a consultant for the city.

It will provide data which will help the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Adjustment, and Historic Preservation Commission make informed land use decisions in accordance with the Master Plan, local ordinances, and Municipal Land Use Law.

During the presentation, AECOM staff will explain the process of conducting the intensive survey and how a better understanding of the historic resources that comprise the historic district will enhance the community’s understanding and ability to prepare for, and recover from, future storm events.

The last Hoboken citywide survey of buildings was conducted in 1979.

This project was made possible through US Housing and Urban Development Community Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program funding.
