Judges Will Take Over Affordable Housing Enforcement

"In a unanimous decision, New Jersey's Supreme Court has ruled that judges should take over enforcement of affordable housing rules.

The court said the state failed to implement new guidelines to comply with previous rulings on how many homes towns should make available for low-and-moderate-income residents.

[Piscataway Mayor Brian Wahler says] 'It’s still not letting the towns off the hook for obligations. However, the folks probably in the building industry are going to be upset because the builders’ remedy suit now has been put in the shelf as long as the towns comply with a reasonable plan to be submitted to the courts,'" as stated by Phil Gregory in WBGO News.
