Save Your Waterfront - FBW Open House

Live music, mimosas, chocolate!

Your waterfront needs some LOVE and it needs it NOW.

NJ Transit and NY Waterway have planned to build a ferry diesel depot at Union Dry Dock, a move that would not only defy the will of the city’s residents and elected officials but would also forever destroy the possibility of a High Line-caliber, fully connected public park along Hoboken’s riverfront.

NJ Transit has multiple options for locating the ferry maintenance/refueling facility but the final decision belongs to Governor Murphy.

Come to FBW’s LOVE YOUR WATERFRONT Open House where you’ll learn what you can do to save your waterfront park. We’ll be writing, calling, emailing and tweeting the Governor all day. Plus, it’s a chance to see all the work that goes into planning a world-class waterfront, including the original 1990 Plan for the Hoboken Waterfront and our 4’ x 12’ architectural model, hand-built by Hoboken residents.

And did we mention we’ll have chocolate?

Handling our Trash: Getting to a Circular Carbon Economy

Americans live with waste every day - a growing problem. Recycling is one of the ways we can have a positive impact on our environment. Recycling can also provide us with renewable sources of energy which help reduce greenhouse gases. A zero waste recycling strategy only works if we understand our shopping, consumption and disposal habits, with the goal to move toward zero trash sent to landfill and incineration. This knowledge will not only make us better recyclers but also better voters as we help shape local, state and national environmental policy. This program will clear up confusion and address how to achieve renewable energy and a low carbon economy.

Stormwater Utilities Webinar

Stormwater management is a prominent policy issue affecting New Jersey residents. Whether it is through combined sewer overflows, flooded basements, destroyed businesses and infrastructure, or snarled traffic, our antiquated infrastructure cannot manage the needs of the densest state in the nation. To make matters more challenging, New Jersey's stormwater management infrastructure suffers from a $16 billion funding deficit. Therefore, how can cities, municipalities, or counties manage their stormwater more equitably and invest in green infrastructure?

To learn more: join Henry Gajda, New Jersey LCV; Andy Kricun, Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority; and, Gary Brune, New Jersey Future, in a webinar that explores the threats stormwater and flooding poses to our state, what stormwater utilities are and how they function, how these flood defense programs could be implemented in New Jersey, and what you can do to get involved and stay engaged.
