'Growth-Share Methodology' for Fair Housing Aired at High Court

New Jersey Law Journal

November 19, 2012

According to this article, "The state Supreme Court is again tackling the twin problems of providing affordable housing in New Jersey towns and preventing municipal zoning that attempts to exclude it. For nearly five hours on Wednesday, the court heard arguments over whether the Council on Affordable Housing should adopt proposed regulations that use 'growth-share methodology' to set municipalities' fair-housing obligations based on projected rates of housing or job growth."  The article also stated, "Kevin Moore said his client, the New Jersey chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties, opposes growth-share because it could encourage municipalities not to allow for commercial construction at all, since affordable housing units would be based on jobs created."
