***MEDIA ADVISORY — THURSDAY*** ASSEMBLY HOUSING COMMITTEE TO HOLD HEARING ON OPERATION OF NJ HOMEOWNER ASSOCIATIONS

(TRENTON) — The Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee is scheduled to hear testimony Thursday from residents and invited guests on issues surrounding the governance and operation of homeowner associations.

Complaints about homeowner associations was one of the top concerns heard by Assembly leadership during the Feb. 2 bipartisan public hearing to gather ideas from residents on how to improve New Jersey.

“The number and variety of complaints and concerns that have been made by or about homeowner associations merits an in-depth discussion,” said Green (D-Union/Middlesex/Somerset) the panel’s chairman. “It may be that the associations need legislative help to fulfill their function. It may be that they just don’t work. Whatever the case, it is my hope that this hearing will be the first step toward everyone working cooperatively to devise a viable solution to these significant housing concerns.”

The Assembly Housing and Local Government Committee is scheduled to meet 2 p.m., Thursday, May 6, Committee Room 16, Fourth Floor, State House Annex, Trenton.
