Camden public hearing on Broadway Townhouses 4/8

The public hearing and second vote on a tax abatement for an affordable housing complex in Camden will be Tuesday April 8, not tonight.

A judge last week ordered Camden City Council re-open the ordinance, which grants Broadway Townhouses a 20-year tax abatement, for public debate. Judge Lee Solomon said the council must also re-vote on the issue since the first vote in April 2013 was held at a meeting which was not properly advertised to the public.

An article published Monday said the hearing would be today, Tuesday April 1 but that meeting is a caucus and will be closed to public comment.

Sorry for the confusion.
