Affordable Housing

  1. Affordable Housing Update - June 2023

UPDATE: On March 30, 2023, a Judgment of Compliance and Repose was entered by the Superior Court of New Jersey followed by a confirming letter of compliance on May 30, 2023. This judgement approves the township’s Housing Element and Fair Share Plan (HEFSP), subject to several modifications, and grants the township immunity from all affordable housing lawsuits through July 1, 2025. This concludes a process that began with the township filing an action in Morris County Superior Court on July 2, 2015.

The HEFSP features a combination of approaches for providing the affordable housing units. This includes increased density provisions for existing zones and inclusionary zoning. Inclusionary zoning means rezoning property(s) to provide for an inclusionary set-aside (15%-20% of the total number of units in housing development) for affordable units. For example, a 15% set-aside on a 100-unit development, would yield 15 affordable units and 85 market units.

As of June 2, 2023, a few projects are currently under construction. These include the Gateways and Crossings at Bennett Avenue (Habitat for Humanity). Several other projects have received site plan approval from the planning board. These include The Village Square (Toll Brothers), Canoe Brook, Sussex Ridge and Liberty Village. No applications have been submitted for the other sites identified in the housing plan.

Randolph Township is required to reserve water supply for these inclusionary developments and cannot issue any water permit applications that would reduce the availability of this reserved water. The township will monitor water consumption as these inclusionary projects are completed to determine future water capacity.
