LYNDHURST, N.J. — A proposal for a 192-unit residential building that will include 39 affordable housing units is headed to the Lyndhurst Board of Commissioners for a vote after being approved by the borough Planning Board.
The proposed development at 240 Chubb Avenue is part of the municipality’s 2015 Housing Element Fair Share Plan.
“The area is zoned industrial but was given approval by the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission that the property is suitable for housing,” according to plan.
The New Jersey Fair Housing Act requires municipalities to prepare a Housing Element that identifies affordable housing opportunities.
“Lyndhurst is a good example of a municipality which is maturing and has a housing stock shaped for its residents and prospective residents based on affordability which is evidenced by small building lot sizes and modest housing prices, especially compared to sister Bergen County municipalities,” according to the plan.
The proposal will go before the Board of Commissioners at its regularly scheduled Nov. 10 meeting.
