The Hoboken Green Infrastructure Strategic Plan received the 2014 Outstanding Plan Award from the American Planning Association-New Jersey (APA-NJ) chapter at their Annual Planning Conference. Louis Berger provided technical planning and engineering services for the project.
The plan was developed under the Together North Jersey Program, a sustainable, transit-oriented planning coalition, funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant. The outcome of the Hoboken Green Infrastructure Plan is to create a city-wide green infrastructure framework and build a more resilient community. Sustainable stormwater management strategies proposed in this plan could be applied to other flood-prone areas in the region and state in the near future.
The APA-NJ chapter honors planning initiatives, built projects, individuals and organizations that are in the forefront of planning and design in New Jersey with its planning awards. The Outstanding Plan Award is given to a plan of unusually high merit that relates to neighborhood, economic development, conservation, transportation and other comprehensive planning efforts.
