A public hearing on a plan to bring nearly 300 apartments and commercial shops to the former Cardinal Newman School site in Forest Acres has been tentatively scheduled for early February.
Forest Acres City Council's hearing is set for 5:15 p.m. Feb. 9 at nearby A.C. Flora High School, according to the city's website.
