Hoboken Seeks Input on Sinatra Drive Redesign Project

A community meeting will be held next week at the Multi-Service Center.

A public workshop will be held next week to gather input on the redesign of a portion of Sinatra Drive.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, May 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Multi-Service Center to discuss the plans to design Sinatra Drive between 4th and 11th streets.

"A scenic waterfront corridor with magnificent views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline, Frank Sinatra Drive remains the only unfinished portion of Hoboken’s re-envisioned and revitalized waterfront," a city statement reads.

"The city wishes to apply its 'complete streets' policy to create a safe street that can be enjoyed by all Hoboken residents—including children, families, older adults, and people with disabilities—for walking, running, biking, and driving. The street also will incorporate 'Green Streets' elements such as rain gardens to reduce stormwater run-off and flooding.

The first public workshop will collect public input on what the community envisions for Sinatra Drive. The project team will explain the objectives and present preliminary findings. The presentation will be given at 7:30 p.m.

Misguided? Don't kid yourself. More Zimmer cronies will be making money. Plan, plan, plan and produce little. It's pretty simple: Finish the walkway, put in sidewalks, repave the road and call it a day. Green patches will do little if the mighty Hudson overflows it's banks. They will serve no purpose other than getting the Mayor an award from some obscure group for another half-baked scheme. Stop wasting my tax dollars on planners and spend my money on much needed repairs to our streets.

@OoC, since you obviously have all the answers and know how every aspect of local government should be done, why don't you actually DO something about it and run for office? Don't let all that political talent go to waste on internet comments.

Any new buildings on Sinatra Drive need to be low rise. I think there is currently a 40 foot limit, but am not certain.Better yet, no buildings, with the possible exception for Stevens immediately in front of the hill on their property.
