Stringing Together Success in Hudson County

Hudson County Directory and Telephone Numbers

In only 46.6 square miles, Hudson County is home to over a half-million residents in 12 contiguous municipalities, making it the most densely populated county in the most densely populated state in the entire country. Yet, Hudson County is as critical to the State Plan's vision of compact growth and open space preservation as any parcel of New Jersey farmland. And, it all started more than a decade ago...

Protecting What's Important

It's a question of resources. Hudson County has plenty — an urban complex of contiguous towns with water, electrical, sewer, telecommunications and transportation infrastructure to match. An enviable stretch of waterfront ripe for corporate, retail and recreational development. An ethnic and cultural melting pot, serving as a rich example of New Jersey's 21st century society and economy. Commuter connections to the greatest city in the world. But, much of the infrastructure is outmoded and one community's vision could be diametrically opposed to it's neighbor's. However, with the State Plan as the backdrop and cross-acceptance as the tool, Hudson County created something unique and exciting — the Hudson County Urban Complex — and the only acknowledged inter-municipal strategic plan in the nation. It's a living document that sets mutually agreed goals and objectives for 12 towns over the next 20 years.

Enhancing Quality of Life

A vision: the year is 2005 and the 18-mile Hudson River Waterfront Walkway is complete. Morning commuters use the promenade to access the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, PATH and ferry boats. Exercisers walk, run, rollerblade and bike an uninterrupted trail of history from Liberty State Park to the site of the infamous Aaron Burr-Alexander Hamilton duel in Weehawken. Couples stroll the esplanade at night, taking in the stunning Manhattan skyline at close range. The Walkway has even helped to improve air and water quality and reduce traffic congestion, integrating modern effluent management systems during its construction and encouraging mass transit, relieving some of the Holland and Lincoln Tunnel traffic. One block at a time, the Walkway has added 65 acres to the region's inventory of open space and immeasurable satisfaction to the lives of those who use it. Sound farfetched? Don't tell that to Hudson County—nearly 10 of the proposed 18 miles have already been built.
