In accordance with N.J.S.A 10:4-12, the “Open Public Meetings Act,” you are hereby notified of a Virtual Meeting of the Hoboken Subdivision and Site Plan Planning Board on June 9, 2020 at 7:00 PM.


This meeting will be conducted by electronic means in accordance with the “Senator Byron M. Baer Open Public Meetings Act” of 2020, which explicitly permits a public body to conduct a meeting electronically during a state of emergency. Governor Murphy issued Executive Orders 103 and 107 declaring a “Public Health Emergency and State of Emergency” and directing residents to quarantine and practice social distancing.


Any questions can be directed to the City Board Secretary main line during business hours at 201-420-2000 x 3004 or via email at pcarcone@hobokennj.gov.


No new matter involving an applicant will be started after 11PM. At 10PM the Board Chair will decide and advise applicants whether they will be heard. If an applicant cannot be heard because of the lateness of the hour, the matter will be carried over to the next regularly scheduled meeting or a special scheduled meeting with preservation of notice.


The Board Chair may change the order in which the agenda items are called.
