Andrew Bayer attorney at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden quoted in centraljersey.com article, “Affordable housing settlement agreement serves Manalapan’s interests.” The article explains the new Affordable Housing settlement agreement will benefit Manalapan Township.
“The settlement agreement will provide Manalapan with immunity from builders remedy litigation through July 2025.”
“The township will have met its third round affordable housing obligation in the manner in which it has chosen to do so with the least impact on development as possible,” Bayer said.
Bayer said Manalapan officials will be required to make the zoning changes needed to permit planned affordable housing projects to be constructed. He said it is the township’s obligation to provide opportunities for the development of affordable housing, but not to build the homes.
“After the Township Committee makes the zoning changes, it is up to a developer to come forward with a project. Any development that is proposed would be required to follow the regular procedures by appearing before the Planning Board to seek approval,” Bayer said.
