Two items of interest on Tuesday's Historic Preservation Commission agenda

Yates Real Estate plans to turn the former Abbott Nursing Home
into Veterans' housing.


Plainfield's Historic Preservation Commission meets for the last time in 2017 on Tuesday evening (December 19) in City Hall Library at 7:30 PM.

Two items may pique your interest --

YATES REAL ESTATE, 810 Central Avenue
This is the former Abbott Nursing Home. Yates is proposing to convert the building to 25 apartments (for veterans, he says), to include construction of  third floor addition. The matter is being referred to the HPC by the Zoning Board of Adjustment as the property is in the Van Wyck Brooks Historic District.

Though this is a separate matter, this is the same Yates that the Council voted a $396,000 settlement to last Monday for claims against the city in the botched demolition of 117-125 North Avenue in 2015 (see my post here).
The HPC will discuss proposed expansion of these two historic districts. 149 properties are being considered for the VWB, and 87 properties for Netherwood Heights.

A survey has been conducted and the HPC is planning to distribute documentation to the public before its February 2018 meeting (that's an ambitious schedule). If either of these topics interests you, plan to be there on Tuesday evening.
The HPC welcomes the public and opportunity for public comment and questions is always given before actions are taken.

City Hall is at Watchung Avenue and East 6th Street. Parking and entrance to the building are in the rear.
