Open House Wednesday for Hoboken Zoning Board applicants

The Hoboken Zoning Board with multiple openings is a focus leading into 2014.  At last Wednesday’s council meeting, City Council President Peter Cunningham announced an open house this Wednesday in council chambers at City Hall where applicants can discuss their applications/background with members of the City Council.

Over the weekend, the Hudson Reporter published a story on the Hoboken Zoning Board but its editors failed to mention anywhere in the the extensive comments by Councilwoman Beth Mason and “independents” the current efforts toward filling Hoboken Zoning Board seats.

The work by the council in December will likely see Hoboken Zoning Board appointments at the first 2014 City Council meeting scheduled Tuesday, January 7th

City Council President Peter Cunningham announces:
