Housing Roundtable Update
Earlier this week, the third Mayors Housing Roundtable was held via Zoom. The League’s Mayors Housing Policy Committee, co-chaired by Past Presidents Mayor Janice Mironov of East Windsor and Mayor Colleen Mahr of Fanwood, has created a Mayors' Working Group to identify challenges and ideas of common interest and develop concrete constructive proposals for Legislative and Administrative consideration, especially in light of the upcoming 2025 Affordable Housing Fourth Round. As part of this important initiative, the Working Group has begun a series of roundtable discussions with Mayors that will continue. In the meanwhile, feel free to submit to us any comments, news articles of interest or other relevant items to the Mayors Housing Roundtable Dropbox.
