New Jersey Supreme Court Decides to Hear Housing Appeals

Court Will Review Lower Court's Decision Finding Housing Regulations Inadequate For immediate release Contact: Kevin D. Walsh - 856-324-4461 Fair Share Housing Center Trenton, New Jersey - March 31, 2011 - The New Jersey Supreme Court has decided to review the October 8, 2010 Appellate Division decision that invalidated the Council on Affordable Housing's (COAH) flawed Third Round regulations. The Court's decision is in response to requests filed by thirteen municipalities and the New Jersey League of Municipalities that want the Court to relieve them of the obligation to provide zoning for starter homes for New Jersey's working families. The municipalities have the support of the Christie Administration, which has called for allowing wealthy municipalities to build walls that exclude working New Jerseyans, seniors, and people with special needs.
