NEW BRUNSWICK - A meeting to discuss the controversy over the building of an apartment building in New Brunswick was called off last night when too many people showed up.

Council chambers couldn't hold the more than 130 people who attended.

This is the second time a planning board meeting on this issue has been postponed due to the turnout.

Residents on Mine Street are upset over plans to build a 52-unit apartment building on a street of one- and two-family homes, some of which are historic.

"We were really quite surprised that they put the meeting right back in the same room when in May they had to adjourn for the exact same reason that they had to adjourn last night," says neighbor Jennifer O'Neill.

No new date for a public hearing on the Mine Street apartment building has been scheduled.
