UNION, NJ – A social media announcement by the Township of Union was posted Tuesday afternoon alerting residents to a community meeting scheduled to take place Wednesday, May 10, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. at Kean University regarding the proposed Kean University Dormitory Project.

According to the posting, the meeting is being hosted by Kean University in response to the “outrage by many residents regarding this new multi-story edifice that will go up immediately in front of many residences along Woodland Ave.”

“As some of you can remember, back in March Mayor Suzette Cavadas spoke at a Kean University Board of Trustees meeting on behalf of the 57,000 residents of Union expressing her concerns about the project and the effects it may have on the quality of life of the residents along Woodland Ave, Lowden Ave, Green Lane and the other streets in the immediate vicinity of the campus,” continued the Facebook posting.  The plans for the project can be found at: http://www.uniontownship.com/DocumentCenter/View/3609
