Legal Marlboro cigarettes

  Marlboro representa-tives are searching for nonprofit organizations that can help the township fulfill its state-mandated obligation to build affordable housing.
In a legal notice that was published in a daily newspaper on June 16, Marlboro officials indicated they were soliciting "a development plan for the provision of affordable housing."
  According to the legal notice, officials will consider proposals from nonprofit corporations, organizations or associations.
  Marlboro must build between 165 and 195 affordable housing units in town in order to meet obligations set by the state Council on Affordable Housing (COAH), township officials have said. COAH administrators set a March deadline for the town to come up with a way to meet its obligation, but the agency has since provided extensions of that deadline.
  The legal notice indicates that Marlboro is considering building 125 affordable housing units, 50 of which would be age-restricted. All of the units would be rentals, according to the legal notice. Nobody under the age of 18 could live in the age-restricted units and at least one tenant would have to be over the age of 55 in these units.
  Affordable housing as defined by COAH is housing that is sold or rented at below-market rates to people who have an income that meets regional guidelines established by COAH.
  Marlboro would get bonus credits from COAH for constructing affordable housing rental units, Mayor Robert Kleinberg said. The units that do not carry an age restriction would each be counted as two units by COAH, while each rented age-restricted unit would qualify as 1.25 units, the mayor explained.
  That means that if the town builds the housing called for in the legal notice, Marlboro would receive credit from COAH for building 212.5 affordable housing units. Under that scenario, the town would exceed its estimated obliga­tion by at least 17.5 units, accord­ing to the estimates of township of­ficials.
  Kleinberg said officials are be­ing cautious in their planning even if it appears to mean going over the required number of affordable units.
  "We don’t want to be short. We want to make sure we have enough affordable units," he said.
  Officials also do not know ex­actly how many affordable hous­ing units COAH will order Marlboro to build, Kleinberg added. Any excess units can be used to meet future affordable housing obligations, the mayor added.
  The legal notice indicates that the parcel of land on which the af­fordable housing would be built must have a minimum buildable area of 12 acres. Municipal offi­cials are deciding among several parcels of land that would be dedicated to affordable housing, Kleinberg said.
  Officials have not ruled out the option of having the town build the affordable housing itself, or of working with a private builder to fulfill Marlboro’s affordable hous­ing obligation, the mayor added.
  "Whatever is most cost effective and practical for Marlboro will be the course of action I recommend," Kleinberg said.
  The proposals from nonprofit organizations are due to be received by township officials on June 24.
