Change in Workforce Housing meeting
I have delayed sending this notice because several members of our group are part of the new Fair and Affordable Housing Advisory Committee established by Toms River. The next meeting of this Committee is scheduled for Monday, May 2, 2011 at 4 p.m. in the second floor meeting room of the Toms River Municipal Building. This is a direct conflict with our normal meeting date and time.
The Committee was created by the Township as part of its admirable effort to produce a comprehensive Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice, as well as obtain input concerning ways to address the need for affordable housing. I spoke with the Township employee who is in charge of this effort and asked her if other interested members of the Workforce Housing group could attend the Committee meeting, in addition to those who are already part of the Committee as representatives of their individual congregations/organizations. She said that this would be okay.
This is an opportunity for us to share our knowledge, ideas and concerns with the Township in a meaningful way. Consequently, in lieu of our regular meeting, we will instead participate in the Fair and Affordable Housing Committee meeting. Please attend if you can. (Note that the meeting starts at 4 p.m. The TR Municipal building in on Washington Street in downtown Toms River, across from the Courthouse and next to the library.)
Our regular meeting schedule will resume on June 6th.
