During a short meeting last week, members of the Gloucester City Planning Board heard a brief presentation by planner Shirley Bishop regarding the City’s compliance status with New Jersey Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) guidelines.
COAH is the state agency designated to set the standards and insure that municipalities are meeting their obligations to offer fair, affordable housing opportunities for low and moderate income families.
Bishop told the Board the City is in good shape to meet COAH requirements.
Additionally, Board Planner Larry Waetzman, of the Waetzman Planning Group, spoke briefly regarding the City’s Master Plan, which is due for review and revision.
The Board approved two applications for emergency roof repairs in the Historic District.
The properties were located in the 100 block of Mercer Street and the 100 block of South King Street.
The Board will meet again at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, in City Hall, 313 Monmouth St.
