ASSEMBLY HOUSING PANEL TO HEAR TESTIMONY ON COAH REFORM

(TRENTON) — Assembly Housing and Local Government Chairman Jerry Green on Tuesday announced the committee will hear testimony from invited guests on recent developments regarding the state Council on Affordable Housing and possible avenues for its reform.

The Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. Thursday, March 4 in Committee Room 16 of the State House Annex.

“Creating a workable affordable housing plan — especially in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the union with expensive housing costs — will take teamwork, compromise and the combined efforts of the executive and legislative branches of government,” said Green (D-Union/Middlesex/Somerset). “I hope this hearing will be the first step toward everyone working cooperatively to devise a viable solution to New Jersey’s housing and planning concerns.”

The hearing will be streamed live here.
