Historic Preservation community meeting

Hoboken residents are invited to a community meeting on Thursday, December 13 at 7:00 pm at City Hall (94 Washington Street, lower level conference room) to discuss the Hoboken Historic District Intensive-Level Architectural Survey being conducted by the New Jersey State Historic Preservation Office (NJ HPO) with support from the Hoboken Historic Preservation Commission (HPC).  The survey is an in-depth review of 1,600 properties located in the State designated National Register-eligible (NR-eligible) historic district.
The purpose of this survey is to document properties associated with the NR-eligible historic district as part of a comprehensive assessment to promote a more holistic understanding of the district within its urban context and support informed decision-making for land use, zoning, and historic designation by the local government. The survey was initiated in October and completed on November 19th. During that time, AECOM architectural historians documented and photographed nearly 1,600 properties and assessed whether or not the properties contribute to the NR-eligible historic district.
The project utilizes United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding.  A better understanding of the historic resources that make up the historic district, and a better understanding of the district’s current boundaries, will enhance the abilities of the HPC and NJ HPO to prepare for, and recover from, future storm events.
AECOM architectural historians contracted by the State of New Jersey will present the survey progress and address the integration of resiliency planning into modern preservation assessments. Community input is welcomed.
Attendees are asked to use the side entrance on Newark Street.
