ORANGE, NJ – Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver met with Executive Director Dr. Walter McNeil and Board Chairman Ernest Williams of the Housing Authority of the City of Orange on July 25. The purpose of the meeting was to review the progress the agency has made in the East Ward and to discuss future projects.
HACO is currently involved in a number of demolition and renovation projects in the area of Central Place and North Parrow Street that have already had a reported positive effect on the community, creating jobs, stimulating the local economy, and contributing revenue to the city.
“Mr. Williams and I thank the Lt. Governor Oliver for giving us time out of her busy schedule to discuss our work in Orange,” said McNeil. “As a resident of Essex County, the Lt. Governor Sheila has seen first-hand the positive transformation that has occurred in the city's East Ward. We hope to continue that trend by developing quality housing for all residents with a strong partnership from the State.”
