Earlier this week Governor Christie issued Executive Order No. 12 , which creates a “Housing Opportunity Task Force” to recommend how the state should address a variety of questions related to providing affordable housing.

The task force is charged with reviewing not only the Fair Housing Act and COAH regulations and methodologies, but also the State Planning Act, in terms of how successful they have been at “accomplishing the goals of meeting the constitutional obligations under the Mt. Laurel decisions consistent with sound planning and economic growth”.

So far only one person has been named to the five-member task force, Marcia Karrow, who will serve as chair.  The members are to have knowledge or expertise in the areas of affordable housing, economic development, land use planning, environmental protection and related issues.
