The rescheduled discussion on the Muhlenberg Hospital site's "in need of redevelopment" study is on the docket for tonight's Planning Board meeting set for 7:30 PM at City Hall Library.

The discussion was rescheduled from August owing to a technical deficiency in the legal notice.

The Planning Board has had a study prepared to give them guidance on deciding whether or not the property qualifies as in need of redevelopment. An affirmative vote on the questions by the Board will move the matter to the City Council, where any final decision must be made.

The report and maps are currently available for inspection at the Planning Division offices on the second floor of City Hall between 9:00 AM and 4:30 PM.

The public will have an opportunity to speak at the Board meeting.

Experience with the Council's behavior at this past Monday's special council meeting on the South Avenue PILOT gives rise to speculation whether a Council majority will give a repeat performance if and when it must decide on the Muhlenberg redevelopment study.
