RE: Affordable Housing, COAH to meet on April 30
The Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) will meet this Wednesday, April 30, 9:30 am at the offices of the New Jersey Housing & Mortgage Finance Agency. On COAH’s agenda is the adoption of proposed regulations related to municipal affordable housing regulations.
If you recall, the New Jersey Supreme Court in a September 2013 decision gave COAH until February 26 to adopt new regulations. On that date, COAH requested an extension, which was, for the most part, granted by the Court. The COAH board has until May 1 to proposed new regulations, which will be published in the June 2 New Jersey Register, commencing a public comment period. The Board must then adopt final regulations in the fall, to be published in the November 17 New Jersey Register.
The proposed regulations are not yet available. The League will advise of any developments following the COAH meeting.

If you have any questions or need additional information please contact Mike Cerra, Director of Government Affairs, at 609-695-3481 x120, firstname.lastname@example.org
Very truly yours,
