Vacant properties in Plainfield have ranged from the grand (above)...
... to the not-so-grand as a result of the 2008 real estate collapse.
With the confusion over extending the boundaries of the Sleepy Hollow neighborhood evidently cleared up, Plainfield City Council's business Meeting Monday (February 11) looks to go rat-a-tat. Note the new meeting time: 7:00 PM.
So, you can expect the meeting to be enlivened by three presentations that Council President Mills-Ransome has put on the agenda.
Finance Director Ron West will give a brief update on technology training. The City is currently offering two series of Cisco career training classes (at Union County College and New Covenant Church).
Shep Brown, Director of Health and Social Services, will give an update on Plainfield's abandoned properties. The city's longstanding problem with vacant and abandoned properties was exacerbated by the wave of foreclosures following the financial collapse of 2008, which we are still working our way out of.MARKETING PLAINFIELD
Communications & Technology Director Jazz Clayton-Hunt will give a demonstration of proposed Plainfield marketing strategies.
City Council meets at 7:00 PM in the Council Chambers / Courthouse at Watchung Avenue and East 4th Street. Parking available on the street and in the lot across from Police Headquarters, though the City has not yet advised the public how to access the lot with 4th Street Extension closed.
