New Charter School Seeks Site
The meeting is 7 p.m. in City Hall Library.
The school needs relief from about a dozen requirements, including schools not being permitted in the R-4 moderate density residential zone and various parking rules.
Scheduled to open in September, the school will bring the number of charter schools in Union County back to four, all in Plainfield. The Pressman school closed its doors during the current school year.

Central Jersey Arts Charter School is also seeking relief from zoning requirements in order to expand into a vacant South Avenue commercial building. The ZBOA began hearing the application on March 3 and will hold its next regular meeting on April 7.
