The first public meeting for the Liberty State Park Circulator Cost-Benefit Analysis was held on Thursday, 24 January between 4:30 PM and 8 PM at City Hall, 280 Grove Street, Jersey City, NJ. There was an open house during which the public could view displays and talk to members of the Sam Schwartz Engineering project team. A formal presentation was made followed by a question and answer session. Four board members and several supporters were present. Unfortunately, strong opposition to any track in the park was voiced by Friends of Liberty State Park. Progress with the study can be viewed on their website: www.lsptransitstudy.com
