RE: Hearing Scheduled on Municipal-Homeowners Association Issues
Assemblyman Gerry Green, Chairman of the Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee, has scheduled a hearing to listen to testimony from residents and invited guests on issues surrounding the governance and operation of homeowners associations.
The hearing is scheduled to meet 2 p.m., Thursday, May 6, Committee Room 16, Fourth Floor, State House Annex, Trenton.
Complaints about homeowner associations was one of the top concerns heard by Assembly leadership during the February 2 bipartisan public hearing, which was held to gather ideas from residents on how to improve New Jersey.
“The number and variety of complaints and concerns that have been made by or about homeowners associations merits an in-depth discussion,” said Chairman Green. “It may be that the associations need legislative help to fulfill their function. It may be that they just don’t work. Whatever the case, it is my hope that this hearing will be the first step toward everyone working cooperatively to devise a viable solution to these significant housing concerns.”
If you would like to testify or submit testimony, please contact Mr. Owen Fletcher of the Committee’s staff at 609-292-7065.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
