COHA Settlement

  • At its June 27 meeting, the Avalon Borough Council introduced four ordinances that represent the implementation its affordable housing obligations:
    • Opportunities for at least 10 accessory apartments on the second floor of structures in the business district
    • A set-aside requirement that will ensure a percentage of units for affordable housing in any new development that will produce five or more living units
    • An overlay permitting land use in the business district that otherwise would be prohibited
    • General plan terms including definitions, monitoring, maximum rents, income eligibility requirements and the need for the Borough to engage in an affirmative marketing plan
  • What Avalon has achieved with these four ordinances, assuming they are adopted on second reading, is a settlement that meets its obligations under state law until 2025, largely through the use of an accessory apartment program that utilizes potential space not yet developed
