Morgan Management’s proposal to build a 99-unit apartment building at 933 University Avenue
will be heard by the city’s Planning Commission tonight. The site is in the East Avenue Preservation District
The controversial project has been through several design revisions. Originally, Morgan planned to demolish the 1920's house on the northeast corner of the property, and the city seldom grants permission to demolish a structure in a preservation district. Morgan now says that it's willing to save the original house and provide space in it for the building's current owner, the Monroe Voiture veterans group.
The Planning Commission
meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in City Council chambers at City Hall, 30 Church Street. There are several items on the agenda. If the commission signs off, the project goes back to the Preservation Board for final approval. Christine Carrie Fien
