City of Hoboken announces:

Mayor Dawn Zimmer joined other Hoboken officials, dignitaries, and members of the public for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Southwest Park – a one acre park in southwest Hoboken designed to hold 200,000 gallons of stormwater runoff that will also serve as a model for green infrastructure resiliency parks in New Jersey. The property is currently a surface parking lot and is the first phase for a larger Southwest Park.

“The Southwest Park project will transform a parking lot into a green oasis for this thriving neighborhood and will be a model for building resiliency parks that help mitigate flooding,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “This park has been a goal of mine since 10 years ago when I was a stay-at-home mom advocating with my neighbors, and it is the reason why I got involved in government. I am thankful to all of the community advocates, the City Council, Hudson County, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust for their strong support of this project.” Read More...


Community Invited to Groundbreaking Ceremony for Southwest Park

City of Hoboken announces:

All members of the Hoboken community are invited to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the Southwest Park – a one acre property designed with integrated flood resiliency features. The ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 30, 2016 at 11:00am at the site of the future Southwest Park, located at the corner of Jackson Street and Observer Highway.  “The creation of the Southwest Park is the reason I first ran for office, so this is an especially meaningful milestone for me, and I invite everyone to join us to celebrate,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “This park will not only provide much-needed green space for the southwest neighborhood, but it will also serve as a first-of-its-kind model in the state for integrating green infrastructure into parks to reduce flooding. I want to thank Councilman Mello and all of my Southwest neighbors who played a crucial role since 2006 to bring the first phase of this park to reality.” The park will feature passive recreational space, green infrastructure (rain gardens, shade tree pits, porous pavers, a cistern for rainwater harvesting and reuse) and an underground detention system to reduce stormwater run-off and localized flooding. It will also include a dog run, moveable cafe tables, a pop-up market zone, restrooms, multi-level seating for small performances, free public Wi-Fi, and a lawn with child-friendly interactive park features.

Sign of the Times: Hoboken hosts continental futbol

Hoboken becomes more the cosmopolitan city with its proximity and transportation access.

Over the weekend, it was the unofficial host to the Argentina National Team appearing in the final of the Copa America, the soccer tournament of the Americas celebrating its 100th year.

There was singing and dancing on lower Hudson Street and downtown in the vicinity of the W Hotel as fans came out to celebrate national pride and some of international soccer’s best.

There was even rumor of a famous religious figure. Read More...

Horse Sense: Are we a bunch of dhimmis?

Mayor Dawn Zimmer hails from New Hampshire where the state motto is “Live Free or Die.”

Based on the party line politics of distraction, deceit and obfuscation seen in Newark and the Obama Administration, the premise of that proclamation is as dead in Congress as the dozens of Americans recently murdered by terrorists. The agenda taken up is a diversion deemed “common sense.” They must think we’re a bunch of dhimmis.

Americans are anything but safe with the open borders anti-American agenda rooted in place. Illegal immigration is the terminal crisis politicians refuse to address even in the face of repeated Islamic terrorist attacks on our shores. No amount of murders, rapes, or yes, gun violence deters them one iota. This recent five year old child’s rape coming to light involving unknown refugees won’t either coining a term for a new domestic threat: rapeugees. Read More...
