|HOBOKEN's Rebuild by Design effort wins $230,000,000 in federal funding|
This is the team that does not say "NO" or "IMPOSSIBLE!"
This is the team that says "We CAN" and "WE WILL." And you know what? They DO.
Does anyone believe that a RebuildByDesign proposal would have ever happened under an Occhipinti, Russo, Mason or Castellano administration?
We need a representative at the County who supports our local initiatives, holds the line on taxes, will push for improved, more cost-effective County services and will champion parks, active recreation and open space. So... please
VOTE FOR PHIL COHEN TODAY

Let's continue the progress, because we believe in the POSSIBLE:
A comprehensive water management project that will protect Hoboken, Weehawken and northern Jersey City has won $230 million of federal funding as part of the Rebuild by Design resiliency competition. This unprecedented level of funding will enable Hoboken and its neighbors to finally solve the flooding problem that has plagued the region for so long.“I have been advocating for a comprehensive solution to Hoboken's flooding problems since I first ran for City Council in 2007,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “This project will implement a water management strategy that will comprehensively protect all of our residents, businesses, and the critical assets we share like the PATH, transit stations, and hospital. One of the elements of the plan will use parks as flood protection, creating more open space for our residents to enjoy.”The comprehensive strategy was developed by an international team of experts led by the firm OMA. The proposal titled "Resist, Delay, Store, Discharge: a Comprehensive Urban Water Strategy" employs a multi-pronged approach to address Hoboken’s historic flooding challenges.
