UCIA Renames Park-Madison "The Jerry Green Building"

Regarding my thought that the Park-Madison building could be renamed in memory of Union County Improvement Authority Executive Director Charlotte DeFilippo, a reader informs me that the Union County Improvement Authority voted in December to rename it "The Jerry Green Building."

Assemblyman Jerry Green is the current chairman of the Union County Democratic Committee, a post that Charlotte DeFilippo also held for many years earlier. He has served in the Assembly since 1992 to present.

Green's legislative office is located in the building, which was built on a lot called Park-Madison  that had been razed for urban renewal decades ago. Development plans changed over and over while the lot was used for parking. It was transformed into a grassy commons with walkways during the tenure of former Mayor Harold Mitchell before the UCIA development.

Thanks to the reader who provided documentation of the UCIA vote!
