Midpoint Review Report

Fair Share

TOWNSHIP OF JACKSON,
COUNTY OF OCEAN
July 1, 2020

Midpoint Review Report

Purpose

The Township of Jackson’s Settlement Agreement with Fair Share Housing Center (“FSHC”) requires that the Township comply with the statutory midpoint review requirements of the Fair Housing Act (“FHA”) and specifically N.J.S.A. 52:27D-313, which provides in relevant part: “[t]he Council shall establish procedures for a realistic opportunity review at the midpoint of the certification period and shall provide for notice to the public.” Pursuant to the FSHC Settlement Agreement, that review requires the Township to post on its website, with a copy to FSHC, and an opportunity for comment, a status report regarding its compliance mechanisms and whether or not unbuilt sites/unfulfilled mechanisms continue to present a realistic opportunity.

Relevant Background

On July 5, 2015, the Township of Jackson filed a Declaratory Judgment Action in response to In re Adoption of N.J.A.C. 5:96, 221 N.J. 1 (2015) (“Mount Laurel IV”). The Township entered into a Settlement Agreement with FSHC on November 10, 2016, which was approved by the Court in an Order dated December 31, 2016. The Court granted the Township’s Final Judgment of Compliance and Repose, filed on November 29, 2018.

Rehabilitation Program(s) Update

The Township has a rehabilitation share of 28 units. From 2013 through 2020, the Township has rehabbed 40 units through the Ocean County HOME Rehabilitation Program, with an additional unit currently in process.

Realistic Opportunity Review

The Township’s Compliance Plan fully satisfies its prior round obligation to create a realistic opportunity for the creation of 1,247 low and moderate-income housing units.
