Q&A Video Podcast on NJ Affordable Housing Oversight

As you are undoubtedly well aware, the March 10, 2015 ruling from the New Jersey Supreme Court stripping the Council On Affordable Housing (COAH) of their oversight of the constitutional obligation of every municipality in New Jersey to plan for and accommodate affordable housing has effectively changed the rules for all of us.

The Rules Have Changed!
Not only have nearly 400 New Jersey municipalities been put on notice that they must submit suitable plans for affordable housing to the Courts by July 8, 2015; but this ruling gives builders and developers legal remedies (outside of the administrative appeals process within COAH) with which to compel these municipalities to comply. If you have a property/site that you believe is suitable for affordable housing, the time to act is now.

For your convenience, here is a breakdown of the ruling and the implications for owners and developers in a video podcast Q&A.
