Marlboro facing court action for failing to provide affordable housing for 15 years

Marlboro facing court action for failing to provide affordable housing for 15 years

COAH approves housing plans for Union, Cresskill

Marlboro was removed from the protections of the state Council on Affordable Housing Wednesday because the agency found that the township "consistently failed to demonstrate good faith" in meeting its housing obligations.

The decision in Trenton permits developers and non-profit organizations, such as Fair Share Housing Center, to obtain compliance with the state Supreme Court's Mount Laurel doctrine through the courts.

At the same meeting, Union (Union County) and Cresskill received approvals of their housing plans for the next eight years.

The approvals recognize Union and Cresskill's good faith in planning for a wide range of housing choices and protect the towns from any litigation for the eight-year period.

"Marlboro was given a dozen chances to remove exclusionary barriers to modestly priced housing and spend the over $13 million they have sitting in the bank for that purpose,'' Adam M. Gordon, attorney for the non-profit Cherry-Hill-based Fair Share Housing Center, said. "But they acted in bad faith, in sharp contrast to municipalities like Union Township that have actively planned for a wide range of housing choices.
