Patricia Trodella is attempting to change the legal occupancy at 28-30 Cooper Street from a two family to a three family dwelling, allowing legal use of the first floor as a residence.
Prior to a damaging fire a couple of years ago, the first floor commercial space and the second floor comprised of a duplex unit in which the owner’s family lived. The third floor was a rental unit.
Plans call for renovating the building into a three 2 bedroom apartments, one apartment on each floor.
NEWRA has sent a letter of “no objection” to the proper agencies.
