Toms River Affordable Housing Plan .. Like or Dislike? [PUBLIC OPINION]
The state’s misguided affordable housing policy has led to excessive development, which results in higher property taxes, infringement upon local control, overcrowded local schools and overstressed municipal services ~ Toms River Officials
There will be a compliance hearing on affordable housing in Toms River coming up on Thursday, May 11th. The township is responsible for coming up with 1,285 affordable housing units by 2025. Judge Mark Trancone, according to a recent Patch article, will determine if Toms River has "provided a realistic opportunity to satisfy its rehabilitation and 'fair share' of the regional need for housing affordable to low income and moderate income households". The May hearing takes place at 9:30 am. Some residents feel it's necessary housing, but some are opposed.
How do you feel about additional "Affordable Housing" being added to the Township?
