Park Ridge NJ supports affordable housing and its Mayor Keith Misciagna and Council have presented a plan to meet our affordable housing obligations.

Park Ridge Mayor Keith Misciagna and the town council: "Developers have been preying on municipalities with the threat of a builder's remedy lawsuit for too long. They have used this threat to force high density housing to create huge profits at the expense of the community. More than 2 years ago Hornrock used this tactic to try to force Park Ridge to approve 972 residential units, claiming we had not met our affordable housing obligation.

Their allegation is totally false. We have met our constitutional obligation for affordable housing, and as a community have a rich history of inclusion.

Along with current projects, we have made plans to build a 100% affordable development, in partnership with the United Way. This project will accommodate veterans, seniors and those with disabilities, as well as individuals and families in need of affordable housing.

Our plan was submitted to the Court and clearly meets the requirements as defined by the accepted methodology, while not adversely affecting the character of our community. We believe this is the type of plan that Fair Share should support, because it so closely aligns with their mission to provide affordable housing to those in need.

We also believe that the courts and Fair Share Housing should not be concerned with developers profits but whether municipalities are making real progress, and in Park Ridge, we certainly are.

While we find this process unreasonable and costly to the taxpayer, we will continue to fight before allowing others force excessive high density housing in our town.

Keith Miscagna, Mayor of Park Ridge and all Park Ridge council members signed.
