Plainfield C
ity Council President Rebecca Williams has called a special meeting for Tuesday March 21.

The purpose is to consider an ordinance amending the financial agreement with South Second Street Redevelopment Urban Renewal II, LLC concerning a portion of the site across from Ruth Fellowship Church where an apartment building is proposed, though construction has yet to begin.

It is not unusual -- as we have learned with the South Avenue Gateway project -- to tweak the financial agreements enabling these projects, often by including new partner(s) in the venture.

At any rate, since an ordinance can only be taken up and passed on first reading at Tuesday's special meeting, it looks like this gambit will allow for second reading and final passage at the April business meeting, thus shortening the timeline for passage.

The meeting gets under way at 7:00 PM in the City Hall Library.. Parking and entry at the rear of City Hall.
