The meeting will be held in the first floor auditorium in the Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal Building, located at 1 Audrey Zapp Drive, Jersey City. The meeting was originally scheduled for the end of January, but was postponed due to “significant public interest.”

The meeting will to discuss alternatives for potential active recreation, arts, and cultural amenities in LSP-North (Phase 1B), as well as elements for inclusion in the Master Plan for LSP-South (Phase 2).

Following the Task Force meeting, an open comment period will be held for members of the public to offer comments to the Design Task Force.

In addition, the public can view a virtual livestream of the meeting by registering here, with advanced registration recommended. Virtual attendees will be able to submit comments online here.

The task force meeting will begin at 10 a.m., with a lunch break taken at 12 noon, and then public comment set to begin at 12:30 p.m.

The Phase 2 Holistic Long-Term Master Plan is in the early stages of development and will be informed by the Summary of Advisory Considerations & Recommendations report, as well as the current Design Task Force and public comments.

The event comes after the state’s top two legislators, Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-19) and state Senate President Nick Scutari (D-23), wrote a letter expressing dismay about the direction of the park’s revitalization efforts and asked for the 23-member task force to have more sway.
