Tuesday's City Council agenda-fixing session includes consideration of two redevelopment plans, one for the 10-acre Muhlenberg site and one for an entire downtown block. The governing body will decide whether to move either or both to the June 19 regular meeting for a vote.
Tuesday's meeting is 7:30 p.m. in City Hall Library, 515 Watchung Ave.. The regular meeting is 8 p.m. on Monday, June 19 in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave. Those who want to comment at either meeting should refer to Ordinance MC 2017-17 for the Muhlenberg redevelopment plan or MC 2017-18 for the plan affecting the block bounded by West Second Street, Madison Avenue, West Front Street and Central Avenue.
The final Muhlenberg redevelopment plan (dated May 5, 2017) is not on the city's website yet, but may be by next week. Among residents' concerns are the scope of medical services to be offered and the type of housing involved.

(The City Council agenda-fixing session is on Tuesday to allow for the Democratic City Committee to reorganize Monday. Mayor Adrian O. Mapp has stated his intention to seek another two-year term as chairman of the committee and his team won 60 of the 68 committee seats, so it is likely he will be named chairman again.)
