Community Meeting to be Held on 9 Paterson Avenue

On Thursday, October 14, at 6:30 pm, the City will host a virtual community meeting regarding a proposed redevelopment in the Southwest Rehabilitation Area, Subarea F, at 9 Paterson Ave., also known as 61 Jackson St.

The project architect and development team will present the project and answer questions from members of the public. No action will be taken by the governing body.

The project site is a triangular lot bounded by Paterson Avenue, Observer Highway, and Jackson Street that contains the one-story G. Millz Boken Roadhouse restaurant (formerly Jack’s Cabin). The proposed redevelopment would include a 2,330 square foot ground floor commercial space facing the Southwest Park and eight residential units on five upper stories.
