Franklin Avenue: An opportunity

Join Princeton Future at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29, 2020 in the Community Room at the Princeton Public Library. 

The Princeton Housing Authority and Princeton Community Housing have entered into an agreement with the municipality to develop 80 new rental homes on Franklin Avenue, as outlined in the municipality’settlement agreement with Fair Share Housing. The Princeton Housing Authority, founded in 1938, owns and manages 236 family and senior/disabled apartments throughout Princeton, and Princeton Community Housing, founded in 1967 by leaders of Princeton faith and community institutions, owns and manages 466 family and senior/disabled apartments in Princeton. Together, these two community-based, not-for-profit organizations have worked collaboratively with the community to provide much-needed opportunities for affordable homes in Princeton.

We invite you to come to this meeting so that the community can have a voice in the visioning for this property that is literally and figuratively
in the heart of Princeton.

Please come and share your thoughts.
