Afforable Housing Meeting

POSTED ON
July 28

Township Council will be dedicating a significant portion of the August 22, 2017 work session to update the residents on the Township's affordable housing obligation. The intention of the meeting is to help Delran residents understand the constitutional compliance obligations imposed by what is commonly known as the Mount Laurel ruling. In an effort to remain transparent, the Mayor and Township Council want the residents to be aware of the steps the Township has already taken and what we are currently doing to work toward an affordable housing obligation that is realistic and achievable.

Note: As the Township is currently in litigation with outside parties, some material may not be able to be discussed in an open, public meeting.

Route 130 Safety

POSTED ON
July 28

July 28, 2017 - Unfortunately, this week we have lost another resident to an accident on the most dangerous road in New Jersey. Our condolences go out to his family for their unconscionable loss.

Since Route 130 is a state owned and operated road, we have been working with the state Department of Transportation to address the ongoing safety problem with pedestrian traffic. Our discussion continued this week with Assemblyman Troy Singleton and has resulted in his attached letter to NJDOT Commissioner Hammer. His letter requests that the Delran portion of Route 130 be included in the state’s ongoing effort to make this road safer. Delran thanks the Assemblyman and the Department of Transportation for their continued efforts to help with this enormous problem.

COAH Update

POSTED ON
July 24

The Township has been proactively preparing for the current situation surrounding the Council On Affordable Housing (COAH) requirements.

For the first two rounds of requirements, we have met or exceeded our COAH requirements. However, COAH has failed to determine the third round obligations for the state.

In 2015, the State Supreme Court ruled that COAH was no longer a functioning agency and directed the municipalities to go to the courts to determine and comply with their obligation. Delran township will ultimately meet our obligation while continuing to fight to ensure that the obligation is realistic.

During the July 11th, Council Meeting, Council President Gary Catrambone briefly reviewed the previous actions taken. You can see and hear the video of that meeting  and specifically at 24:26 (24 minutes and 26 seconds) hear the remarks regarding the COAH situation. 

On July 21st, the agenda for the July 25th meeting was posted indicating that at the July 25th meeting, we would set up a time and date for a public forum to discuss and review the history of our Affordable Housing plan which is designed to ensure that the end result is in the best interest of the entire community.

NOTE: Due to the township’s lawsuit defense. Some litigation details cannot be discussed in this post or any public forum.
