Resolution 6A-2018 adopts the Township's 2018 Housing Element and Fair Share Plan, which contains updated data and analysis on the Township's current and projected demographic, housing stock, and employment characteristics as well as an updated Fair Share Plan for the cumulative period 1987-2025. The Township's Fair Share Plan indicates a rehabilitation obligation of 180 units, a prior round obligation of 328 units and a third round prospective need of 884 units. Also included in the Fair Share Plan are detailed descriptions of the residential development projects, both completed and anticipated, that address the municipality's obligation.

The new Article XII includes provisions relating to rehabilitation, accessory apartments, new construction guidelines, affirmative marketing, occupancy standards and other administrative and enforcement matters related to affordable housing. Ordinance 1993-2018 also adopts affordable housing set-aside requirements applicable to residential development in the Township's Regional Growth Area, Pinelands Villages and Pinelands Town area. Specifically, a 20 percent set-aside is required for all residential projects of five or more units and all mixed-use projects containing five or more residential units.

Ordinance 1994-2018 adopts a Redevelopment Plan for the White Horse Pike Corridor Phase 4A - Block 460, Lots 4-11 and Block 461, Lots 1-5 and 6.01-6.06.  The new Redevelopment Area, also known as the Nantucket Redevelopment Area, encompasses approximately 60 acres within the HC-2 (Highway Commercial) District in the Pinelands Regional Growth Area.  Permitted uses in the Nantucket Redevelopment Area are limited to mixed use development, consisting of market multi-family and affordable multi-family residential development and community commercial/office uses. Maximum residential density is 10 units per acre. Twenty percent of all units must be set aside as affordable housing units. Pinelands Development Credits must be used for 30 percent of all market rate units.
