Jackson council creates two affordable housing zones

The Township Council has adopted two ordinances establishing new zones where affordable housing will be permitted to be constructed. The zones are off Perrineville Road and off North New Prospect Road in Jackson. Council members took the action June 27. Affordable housing is defined as housing that is sold or rented at below market rates to individuals and families whose income meets regional guidelines. State courts have ruled that municipalities have an obligation to provide opportunities for the development of affordable housing.
