Wayne NJ,  Judge forces over development on Wayne . Judge Thomas Brogan, sitting in state Superior Court in Paterson, ruled that Wayne officials have avoided their responsibility through five-plus years of “bad faith” and “concerted procrastination.”  The court decision  means Wayne  has lost protection from builder’s remedy lawsuits this week after a judge ruled that officials have dragged their feet for too long in their obligation to plan for low-income housing.

Tuesday’s order makes Wayne only the third town in the state, following Englewood Cliffs and South Brunswick, to be stripped of housing immunity.

  2. Sad news for all the Passaic Co NIMBYs who would like to use the police power of the state to regulate who can live in their hometowns.

  3. And yet when those taxpayers moved to Passaic County, it was perfectly fine for them to expect — demand, even — things like roads and schools and sewers and police protection. “It’s ok if I want it but not if anyone else does.” Go figure.

  5. How perverted is this? A whole community is being condemned with a significant risk of deteriorating quality of life by a judge just because the local elected officials can’t find a way to accommodate the insanity of high density housing. A fine form of communism. This is disgusting.

  6. At least Ridgewood already green lighted high density enough that this isn’t a risk anymore. Great foresight by the Council members when these were given the go ahead almost a decade ago!

  7. Courts forcing development on communities that are built out and on environmentally sensitive lands full of threatened and endangered species is really developers owning certain politicians and courts. When re development is used to pave over perfectly good farm ground rather than re build the cities that these laws were suppose to address , you know corruption for profit is a lot of what this game is about. Affordable housing is a noble thing to do but force feeding it into places it does not belong shows the graft and favors being passed out.
