Will Judge Tell Brigantine to Offer More Affordable Housing?

Is Brigantine in compliance with the Affordable Housing Act? A resolution and possible contract amendment was discussed at the recent city Council meeting.

Brigantine, and other towns, are compelled to follow a 1987 law called the Mount Laurel doctrine. This requires Brigantine to make a percentage of homes affordable to low- to moderate-income families.

Will Brigantine have three new affordable-housing units? Mayor Phil Guenther says Brigantine may not have adequate space. A judge will weigh in on that issue on Sept. 27. Brigantine will be in court to see what it needs to be considered fully compliant with the Mount Laurel Doctrine.
