What's wrong with this picture?

There's an old saying that if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. Our response to the Wayne Master Plan Revision.


Livingston Town Center


On an associated issue, which relates to Wayne incurring additional low income housing obligations as a result of the proposed zoning changes, which would be almost the same as those in Livingston, the Appellate Division of New Jersey Superior Court,

“…a builder’s remedy lawsuit against Livingston Township.”  A developer  sued “for a builder’s remedy under New Jersey’s Mount Laurel doctrine.  Under that doctrine, when a municipality fails to provide its fair share of affordable housing, a builder may sue to make the town change its zoning laws to allow inclusionary development with a combination of market rate and affordable units.”  The Court allowed “the developer to build 220 apartments, of which 44 would be affordable family rental units.  The Township appealed, and in a 52 page decision the Appellate Division upheld the trial court’s order. A Mount Laurel builder’s remedy is an effective tool available to residential developers in municipalities that are recalcitrant in meeting affordable housing obligations.” (http://www.litigationlandscape.com/category/builders-remedy/  August 30, 2013)

The complex was the subject of “a suit between Squiretown and the township under the state’s “Mount Laurel” guidelines. The Livingston Township Council “under protest” recently approved zoning that would allow the complex to go in and an order by New Jersey Superior Court said the hearing on the application should proceed”.
