WILKES-BARRE — The Sherman Hills Task Force will be holding a walk-through of the apartment complex on Saturday morning, Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Moosic, said today.
Following the 10 a.m. tour, there will be a brief meeting with a small group of Sherman Hills residents.
The walk-through will be led by John VanMetre, Director of Property Management at the Aspen Companies.
The Task Force was formed in response to an unsatisfactory report by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which paid Sherman Hills $1.7 million in 2013 to provide low-income housing at the 344-unit complex.
In addition to Cartwright, other confirmed attendees as of Wednesday were: state Rep. Eddie Pashinski, D-Wilkes-Barre; city Councilman George Brown; Luzerne County Councilwoman-elect Eileen Sorokas; Angel Jirau, executive director, Spanish American Leaders Serving All.
Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton has been invited, as have several other political and community leaders.
