Cooper University Hospital on Thursday proposed a meeting of government officials and nonprofit agencies to discuss helping Camden tenants who were promised a chance to buy their homes for $1.
An Inquirer article on Sunday highlighted 1992 agreements with the city and state that allowed a low-income-housing developer to buy 91 city-owned housing units in Camden. In return, the developer, Israel Roizman, promised to sell them for $1 each after 15 years.
Roizman has not fulfilled his promise, and the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, which signed the deed that laid out the arrangement, has said it would not enforce the deal. The city is reviewing the matter.
