Affordable Housing Compliance

Affordable Housing Compliance

On March 10, 2015, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued a ruling which removed the approval of municipal planning for the provision of affordable housing within the municipality from the Council on Affordable Housing to the judiciary.

Municipalities which desired to continue participate, as the Borough of Rocky Hill has, in the affordable housing process had until July 8, 2015 to file with the judiciary.
