Hoboken: Meeting to be held about Second Street building providing housing for homeless vets

Six homeless veterans would be able to call Hoboken’s American Legion Post 107 home under a current plan to convert the garage-esque meeting hall on Second Street into a new five-story building.
Post 107 faced significant flooding issues during Superstorm Sandy, which the proposed development would also address.
A meeting will be held on Monday, Feb. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the post (308 Second St.) to discuss the plans for the 96 year-old structure.
“The American Legion, in partnership with Monarch Housing, Hoboken Shelter, and the City of Hoboken, was awarded six housing vouchers for homeless veterans in 2015,” said City Spokesman Juan Melli in an announcement.
Mayor Dawn Zimmer and County Executive Thomas DeGise are among the pols signed on to the Mayors Challenge to End Veterans Homelessness issued by First Lady Michelle Obama in 2014.
