The committee discussed the first section of the proposed revised zoning ordinance in revisions to permitted and conditional use sections.

The committee also discussed the COAH residential impact fee ordinance approved by COAH in March.  Mr. Burgis indicated that the Housing Plan includes the base amount permitted by COAH of $10,000 per rehabilitation unit.  He also indicated that the municipality can decide whether to use loans or grants to make that money available.  Mr. Lipari asked what surplus money could be used for.  Mr. Burgis indicated that it could be used for additional assistance or to build new affordable units.  Based on his experience, Mr. Burgis says communities usually adopt a 1.5% or 1.0% residential development impact fee.  Montville‚Äôs draft development fee ordinance filed with COAH currently lists a 1% fee; the subcommittee continues to discuss various revenue and expense recommendations.

The committee discussed the Open Space and Recreation Plan prepared by The Land Conservancy of New Jersey prior to the June 9 courtesy presentation to the Planning Board.



There being no further business to discuss the meeting was unanimously adjourned at 9:45 a.m.
