The monthly Planning Board meetings were previously held at the Council Chambers in City Hall on Bayard Street.

To mitigate the impact of COVID-19, Murphy signed Executive Order No. 107 on March 21. It directs state residents to stay at home until further notice with exceptions such as those obtaining essential goods or services and seeking medical attention.

There are three items on the agenda, including an application by Resnick Distributors, who is seeking a protection period extension for a final site plan.

The New Brunswick-based products distribution company which carries cigarettes and tobacco, confections, snacks, grocery, frozen food, clothing and several other goods to convenience stores, pharmacies, supermarkets, tobaccos shops and other stores appeared before the board on March 12, 2018, seeking site plan and variance approvals for its property at 25 Van Dyke Ave.

Resnick Distributors, whose warehouses are in the shadow of the New Brunswick water tower, is one of the 25 largest convenience store distributors in the United States, according to its website.
