Clarification regarding Zoning Ordinance Public Notice August 2018

Please see the following clarification in response to inquiries regarding the notice of hearing on proposed changes to the Township’s Housing and Zoning Ordinances:

The Township is under an obligation to comply with a recent New Jersey Supreme Court decision with regard to low and moderate income housing.  By amending two Township ordinances, which have been in effect for many years, the Township will bring itself into compliance with current New Jersey law.  To be noted is the fact that the ordinances that have been in place for many years have not resulted in any new developments.
