Re: COAH 3rd Round Cost Survey
IMMEDIATE ATTENTION REQUIRED – TIME SENSITIVE
In anticipation of legislation to reform the Fair Housing Act, the League is conducting an analysis of the costs of COAH preparing and adopting a housing element and fair share plan and petitioning COAH for approval of same. For the sake of simplicity, we are only asking for the costs associated with the “3rd round” regulations, adopted in 2008. If you recall, the League filed a legal challenge of these regulations, which is pending in the Appellate Division. We ask that you forward this correspondence to an appropriate person, and return to the attention of Mike Cerra by fax at 609-695-0151. The results can also be sent in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
