New Jersey Statutes, Title: 52, STATE GOVERNMENT, DEPARTMENTS AND OFFICERS

    Chapter 14B:

      Section: 52:14B-4.1b: Housing affordability impact analysis.

          
31. a. In proposing a rule for adoption, the agency involved shall issue a housing affordability impact analysis regarding the rule, which shall be included in the notice of a proposed rule as required by subsection (a) of section 4 of P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-4). Each housing affordability impact analysis shall contain:

(1) A description of the types and an estimate of the number of housing units to which the proposed rule will apply; and

(2) A description of the estimated increase or decrease in the average cost of housing which will be affected by the regulation.

This subsection shall not apply to any proposed rule which the agency finds would impose an insignificant impact, either because the scope of the regulation is minimal, or there is an extreme unlikelihood that the regulation would evoke a change in the average costs associated with housing. The agency's finding and an indication of the basis for its finding shall be included in the notice of a proposed rule as required by subsection (a) of section 4 of P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-4).

b. In proposing a rule for adoption, the agency involved shall issue a smart growth development impact analysis regarding the rule, which shall be included in the notice of a proposed rule as required by subsection (a) of section 4 of P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-4). Each smart growth development impact analysis shall contain:

(1) A description of the types and an estimate of the number of housing units to which the proposed rule will apply;

(2) A description of the estimated increase or decrease in the availability of affordable housing which will be affected by the regulation; and

(3) A description as to whether the proposed rule will affect in any manner new construction within Planning Area 1 or 2, or within designated centers, under the State Development and Redevelopment Plan.

This subsection shall not apply to any proposed rule which the agency finds would impose an insignificant impact, either because the scope of the regulation is minimal, or there is an extreme unlikelihood that the regulation would evoke a change in the housing production within Planning Area 1 or 2, or within designated centers, under the State Development and Redevelopment Plan. The agency's finding and an indication of the basis for its finding shall be included in the notice of a proposed rule as required by subsection (a) of section 4 of P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-4).

For the purposes of complying with this subsection, and in order to avoid duplicative action, an agency may consider a series of closely related rules as one rule.

c. For the purposes of this section, "types" means housing groups distinguished by the following categories: housing reserved for occupancy by very low, low and moderate and middle income households, respectively; single family, two-family, and multi-family housing; rental housing and for-sale housing.

L.2008, c.46, s.31.
