          Master Plan - Fair Share & Housing Element – public hearing 5/27/10

Mr. Burgis summarized the Fair Share & Housing Element indicating that Montville is in a good position as it relates to the affordable housing component needs of the future, noting we will only need 28 more units and that we have provided for this in approvals we already granted or are considering.  This plan goes to 2018.  The COAH third round and fair share must be filed with COAH no later than June 8th.  The Township Committee has been invited to the Planning Board public hearing on May 27th.  Immediately after the planner’s presentation of the material, the Township Committee can convene and adopt the resolution accepting the Third Round certification documents.  He stressed that although the Governor released statements today that indicates COAH may be eliminated, that we should make sure we get our certification and documents on file to protect us from any liabilities/lawsuits in future.

He indicated that comments received from the Highlands on the Housing module submitted was reviewed, and that he had no issue with their comments, only to note that he added a line indicating that we will promote the Highland’s Goals and Objectives in their Preservation area only, and not in the Planning area since they differ somewhat from our Goals & Objectives of our Master Plan.
