Peter Cunningham is strongly supporting a new park to be located on the BASF site at llth and Madison Streets. This Spring, he sponsored the initiative to move forward with an application for a low interest loan from the New Jersey Environmental Trust to purchase the 6 acre property.
The location would be used for two purposes. First a large, multi-purpose park that includes active recreation would be built, adding to Hoboken’s quality of life. Additionally, an underground storm water retention chamber would be installed as part of the City’s comprehensive effort to tackle the flooding problem.
“Parks and open space are essential to our quality of life. That’s why I continue to make obtaining new park space as well as maintaining and upgrading our existing parks a high priority,” said Cunningham. Establishing a park at this site is a long-time priority for Councilman Cunningham.
