The Plainfield Municipal Utilities Authority, which provides trash removal and recycling services to the city, will hold its annual reorganization meeting Thursday (Feb. 16) at 127 Roosevelt Avenue, electing officers and making other designations for the year.
The Feb. 6 committee meeting was rescheduled to Thursday and will precede the reorganization. See the agenda here. The meeting starts at 6 p.m.
The City Council voted approval in January to replace longtime PMUA Commissioner Carol Brokaw with Pedro Estevez, formerly Alternate No. 2, for a five-year term ending in February 2021. Miguel Edghill was also appointed to succeed Charles Tyndale for a term to February 2021. Marleen Powell was named to succeed Robin Bright and Pat Van Slyke to succeed Estevez as alternates with terms expiring in February 2019.
At 7:30 p.m.Thursday, the Planning Board meets in City Hall Library, 515 Watchung Avenue. The agenda lists only one application, an amendment to final site plan approval for the former American Red Cross building at Grove Street and West Front Street. The applicant, Shun Cheng LLC, received preliminary site plan approval in 2014 to convert the building to nine apartments over retail space on the ground floor.
Representatives of Shun Cheng LLC appeared at the Jan. 19 Planning Board meeting to explain changes that became necessary as they found unforeseen conditions. (I was on my so-called break from blogging and attended but did not take notes - I believe the problems were in the facade.)
