City of Hoboken announces:
PUBLIC INVITED TO REVIEW PRELIMINARY DESIGN CONCEPTS FOR 1600 PARK & HOBOKEN COVE
The City has commissioned the professional landscape architect Imbiano Quigley (IQ) to design the parks at 1600 Park and Hoboken Cove. Based on input from two earlier community meetings, IQ has developed four preliminary conceptual designs for the parks. Residents can view the four designs at http://www.hobokennj.org/1600park.
The design concepts are also on display in the lobby of City Hall through early January, alongside the design ideas of a studio class of graduate students in the Landscape Architecture program at City College in New York.
The concepts demonstrate a variety of active and passive park features. As residents review these designs, they are asked to consider mixing and matching elements from the various concepts, as opposed to choosing one concept over another. This is an opportunity for the community to think broadly about which elements will make for the best park to meet the present and future needs of this area and Hoboken as a whole.
The public can submit feedback on the preliminary design concepts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or through the comment box in the lobby of City Hall. City Hall is typically open Monday through Friday, 9:00 am – 4:00pm but will be closed on Friday, December 23rd and Monday, December 26th.
A final conceptual plan, which may incorporate features from various preliminary concepts, will be developed and presented for additional feedback at a public meeting to be held in late January. The time and location for the meeting will be announced at later date.
