Proposed Muhlenberg Development:Town Hall at Cedarbrook School

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 – 7:00 PM
Cedarbrook School
1049 Central Avenue

Dear Friends,

The Board of Muhlenberg has proposed demolishing the hospital and replacing it with 600 units of housing. Several questions arise, among them:

  • Does this type of development make sense? 
  • Is this too much density for that neighborhood? 
  • Is this what Plainfield needs? 
  • Are the ratables enough to offset the costs to the city and to the school system? 
  • Why housing only? Why is there not a commercial component to what has been proposed? 
  • What are the alternatives? 

What are your thoughts? Come share them with me and the rest of the Council, along with the Muhlenberg Board.
