Voters reject Hoboken (N.J.) district's $241 million bond request

Jan. 26, 2022
The bond would have enabled the district to build a high school on the JFK stadium site and convert the existing high school into a middle school.

Hoboken, N.J., voters have rejected a referendum that would have allocated $241 million for a new high school on the site of John F. Kennedy Stadium

The tally was 4,929 no and 2,542 yes, or 66% to 34%, reports NJ.com.

The district said the construction plans would have provided additional space and alleviated the district's enrollment crunch. The district would have built a high school, converted the existing high school to a new middle school and converted the existing middle school into an elementary.

The proposed high school would have had two gyms, a year-round ice hockey rink, two tennis courts, a competition-sized pool, a wellness studio, an occupational and physical therapy room and a turf field on the roof with a six-lane track.
