WOODLAND PARK, NJ - The Borough Council introduced six ordinances at its July 18 meeting aimed at moving the municipality forward in its plans to satisfy its affordable housing obligation.

The ordinances address the obligations under the Fair Housing & the Uniform Housing Affordability Controls by updating the zoning and general code in the areas identified for redevelopment: the commercial business district of McBride Avenue, the Kearfott site on McBride Avenue, The Bank of America site off Rifle Camp Road and the Marino property between the Peckman River and Memorial Drive along Lackawanna Avenue.

Plans call for the possibility of 826 prospective, new units to be added in a number of locations with 15% of those being affordable housing and the remainder being market value units. At this stage, these are proposed plans and there are no developers currently attached to any projects.
