PLAINFIELD, NJ — The Plainfield Zoning Board of Adjustments will hold its annual reorganization meeting on Wednesday, January 15. Board member Robert K. Graham, whose term had expired at the end of 2019, and newcomer Sandra Harrison will be sworn in. A resolution adopting the nominations was unanimously approved at the City Council reorganization meeting on January 6.  A new Chair and Vice Chair will also be elected.

On the agenda are two resolutions to be memorialized, including 1014 South Avenue, LLC which received final approval at last December’s marathon 5-hour meeting. The final plan allows for a 5-story building with 1- and 2-bedroom apartments, with 1800-square-feet of retail on the ground floor and an adjacent multifamily mixed-use structure. The entire project includes 47 apartments with 55 parking spaces, including 12 covered spaces, as a part of the design. Five existing structures surrounding the area are to be demolished to accommodate the new addition to South Ave.
