Explainer: What Is Affordable Housing?

By on September 28, 2017

Much of the September 25 Town Council meeting again revolved around the development of additional affordable housing in Verona. At its September 11 meeting, the Council had disclosed that developers are considering affordable housing construction on four sites: the former Poekel Travel Bureau office near the Verona Community Center, the former Children’s Institute site on Sunset Avenue, a private property now used as the Verona leaf dump on Commerce Court and a heavily wooded lot on Mount Prospect Avenue at the edge of Eagle Rock Reservation.

But there seemed to be some confusion among the public in attendance over exactly what constituted affordable housing. So MyVeronaNJ.com put together this infographic to cover some of the basics. There will be many more questions to be addressed before anything gets built, which won’t be any time soon.
