Public Hearings to be Held for Community Input for Incoming Grants

The hearings will be held on Thursday, February 26, 2015, and Thursday, March 26, 2015, 5:30pm, in City Council Chambers, 44 City Hall Plaza. The City of East Orange invites the community’s contribution on the consolidated plan that will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on or before May 15th, 2015.
