Required land use development staging.
(1) 
As a condition to preliminary approval of a planned unit development plan, the Planning Board may permit the implementation of the plan in whole or in sections or in stages consisting of one or more sections or stages, under the sequence of actions determined as a part of the development plan. Such sections or stages shall be:
(a) 
Substantially and functionally self-contained and self-sustaining with regard to access, parking, utilities, open spaces and similar physical features and shall be capable of substantial occupancy, operation and maintenance upon completion of construction and development.
(b) 
Properly related to other services of the community as a whole and to those facilities and services yet to be provided in the full execution and implementation of the development plan.
(c) 
Provided with such temporary or permanent transitional features, buffers or protective areas as the Planning Board may require as will prevent damage or detriment to any completed section or stage, to other sections or stages and to adjoining properties not in the development plan. Plans and specifications of such sections or stages are to be filed with the Planning Board and are to be of sufficient detail and at such scale as to fully demonstrate the following:
[1] 
The arrangement and site locations of all structures, primary and accessory land uses, parking, landscaping, public and private utilities and service facilities and land ownership conditions.
[2] 
Estimates of the economic base of the section or stage and its one or more sections or stages as supported by such evidence as the estimated cost and market values of structures and land improvement increase of taxable values; costs of maintenance and services to be borne by public and private agencies; potential rental scale costs of utility installation; the financial ability of the developer to complete the plan and such other financial considerations as the Planning Board shall deem applicable.
[3] 
Estimates of its population characteristics such as the size and composition of future population in terms of probable family sizes of the several dwelling unit types; their need for public services and protection, for recreational facilities and for commercial and professional services; anticipated rental scales; and related consideration.
[4] 
Such further reasonable evidence and fact that the Planning Board may require in order to determine that the objectives and standards set forth herein are met.
[5] 
Upon finding that the plan and specifications for the proposed development of the section or stage conform to the above conditions, the Planning Board shall so inform the administrative officers as are charged with the issuance of permits for the construction of utilities or structures that upon presentation of requisite working drawings and specifications such permits may be issued. Upon substantial completion of any section or stage, which shall include all performance bonds, covenants and similar instruments to assure such completion, and before proceeding with the review and approval of additional sections or stages, the Planning Board may require a report and review of the status, character and conditions and other previous completed sections or stages with regard to their compliance with the plans, specifications and estimates which formed the basis for their action and approval. Upon finding that such compliance has occurred, the Board shall begin proceedings for the review of the new section or stage.
[6] 
As a further condition for approval of later sections or stages, the Board may require or permit adjustments or modifications in the conditions established in the approved development plan to compensate for differences between the estimates of record on previously approved and completed sections or stages as required and the actual conditions prevailing upon their completion. In this regard, consideration may be given to the balance of land uses established consistent with the conditions of the development plan and the extent of variation from the social and economic estimates upon which previous approval may have been based.
(2) 
Notwithstanding the aforementioned conditions and regulations, the following schedule for land development prevails. Following preliminary approval of the development plan, building permit shall be issued for the development plan in accord with the following;

No further residential permits shall be issued until an additional 25% of the total contemplated commercial development is constructed, for which certificates of occupancy are issued.
(c) 
Following the issuance of a certificate of occupancy for the additional 25% of the commercial building area, building permits may be issued for the plan. No further residential permits shall be issued until an additional 35% of the total of the commercial development contemplated has been constructed and for which certificates of occupancy have been issued.
(d) 
Following issuance of certificates of occupancy for 75% of the commercial areas of the development plan, then the building permits may be issued for the balance of the residential dwelling units of the development plan.

[Added 4-18-2018 by Ord. No. 12-2018]
A. 
Purpose.
(1) 
The Township of Egg Harbor uses its zoning code to meet affordable housing needs by requiring residential development in certain districts in the Pinelands area of the Township to provide affordable housing, as is required by the New Jersey Fair Housing Act (N.J.S.A. 52:27D-301 et seq.) (hereinafter "Fair Housing Act"). Consistent with Section 329.9 of the Fair Housing Act, this section requires all residential development within the RG-4 and RG-5 zoning districts to provide a 20% affordable housing set-aside.
(2) 
It is the specific purpose and intent of this section to meet affordable housing requirements required by Section 329.9 of the Fair Housing Act, in the RG-4 and RG-5 districts of the Pinelands area of the Township. This section also implements Section 8 of the settlement agreement between the Township of Egg Harbor and Fair Share Housing Center (hereinafter "FSHC") in the case entitled In the Matter of the Application of the Township of Egg Harbor, County of Atlantic, Docket No: ATL-L-1506-15. The settlement agreement was entered into between the parties on August 16, 2017, and was approved by the Court during a properly noticed Fairness Hearing held on October 17, 2017, which was later memorialized by an order entered by the Court on November 27, 2017.
B. 
Applicability.
(1) 
This subsection of the land use regulations of Egg Harbor Township sets forth mechanisms by which developers shall provide affordable housing based on residential development taking place within certain Pinelands Areas of Egg Harbor Township.
(2) 
Residential development. Except as exempted in Subsection C, all residential development in the RG-4 and RG-5 districts of the Township that results in the construction of new market-rate dwelling units shall be subject to the provisions of this section.
C. 
Exemption. Residential development that has received preliminary or final approval before the effective date of this section shall not be required to comply with this section unless the approvals expire, or approvals related to the development are amended to reflect a substantial change to the general terms and conditions on which preliminary approval was granted, including but not limited to use; layout of streets, curbs and sidewalks; lot size; yard dimensions and off-tract improvements; and, in the case of a site plan, any conditions peculiar to site plan approval.

E. 
Residential provisions.
(1) 
All residential development in the RG-4 and RG-5 zone districts that result in the construction of new residential housing units shall set-aside 20% of the new units for low- and moderate-income households. 50% of the low- and moderate-income units shall be set aside for low-income households, including 13% of the low-income units for very-low-income households.
(a) 
On-site affordable housing construction. Any developer of residential housing in the RG-4 and RG-5 zone districts proposing new residential development shall construct, on its site, a 20% affordable housing set-aside for low- and moderate-income households. 50% of the low- and moderate-income units shall be set aside for low-income households, including a 13% set-aside of the low-income units for very-low-income households. The 13% very-low-income requirement will not apply to developments that produce less than eight affordable units.
[1] 
As an example, if a residential developer seeks to construct five units, four of the units may be sold at market rate, and one unit must be designated as "affordable" for a low-income household.
[2] 
As an example, if a residential developer seeks to construct 20 units, 16 of the units may be sold at market rate, two units must be designated as "affordable" for moderate-income households, and two units must be designated as "affordable" for low-income households.
[3] 
As an example, if a residential developer seeks to construct 100 units, 80 of the units may be sold at market rate, 10 units must be designated as "affordable" for moderate-income households, seven units must be designated as "affordable" for low-income households, and three units must be designated as "affordable" for very-low-income households.
(b) 
Densities. The Township's residential zoning across the Pinelands Regional Growth Area was based on the Pinelands Commission's requirements of 2.5 dwelling units per acre base density with an increase to a maximum of 3.75 dwelling units per acre through the acquisition of Pinelands Development Credits. The densities within the RG-4 and RG-5 zones, which exceed the base densities, are as follows:
Zoning District
Density
RG-4
6.0 du/acre
RG-5
7.5 du/acre
(c) 
Pinelands Development Credit requirements. Pinelands Development Credits shall be required for 25% of all units in the RG-4 and RG-5 Zones, excluding those units which are made affordable for very-low-, low- and moderate-income households. One-quarter of a Pinelands Development Credit (i.e., one right) shall be purchased and redeemed for every four non-income restricted units, rounded up to the next highest increment of a quarter Pinelands Development Credit.
(d) 
Application fees for municipal subdivision/site plan approvals. Application fees for Municipal Planning/Zoning Board approvals which provide affordable housing units shall be based on the nonincome restricted units only.
(e) 
Example of the affordable housing, bonus density, application fees and Pinelands Development Credit requirements. As an example, if a residential developer seeks to develop on 10 acres in the RG-5 Zone the following would apply:
[1] 
Units permitted = 75 units.
[2] 
Number of affordable units required = 15 units.
[3] 
Units for which fees and Pinelands Development Credits are calculated = 60 market rate units.
[4] 
Application fees required:
[a] 
For subdivisions:
[i] 
Preliminary major subdivision: $400 + 60 lots @ $30/lot = $2,200.
[ii] 
Final major subdivision: $400 + 60 lots @ $30/lot = $2,200.
[b] 
For site plans:
[i] 
Preliminary major site plan: $1,000 + 60 units @ $25/unit = $2,500.
[ii] 
Final major site plan: 50% of preliminary application fees = $1,250.
[5] 
Pinelands Development Credits required: 25% of 60 market rate units = 15 units or 3.75 PDCs.
F. 
General provisions for constructing affordable units.
(1) 
Affordable housing units being constructed on-site shall be in conformance with the Fair Housing Act, all applicable COAH and UHAC regulations, the Township's Affordable Housing Ordinance, applicable settlement or development agreements, and any applicable court orders (including any JOR orders and JOR condition follow up orders). Such requirements shall include, but are not limited to, requirements regarding phasing schedule, controls on affordability, low-/moderate-income split, heating source, maximum rent and/or sales prices, affordability average, bedroom distribution, and affirmative marketing.
(2) 
Projects which contain less than 20 total affordable units shall have the units dispersed throughout the developments and shall be located within buildings designed to be architecturally indistinguishable from the market-rate units otherwise being constructed within the development. Projects which contain 20 or more affordable units shall have the option of providing 100%-affordable buildings that meet the requirements for garden apartments at a location on-site. Regardless of how the units are provided, the scale, massing, roof pitch and architectural detailing (such as the selection of exterior materials, doors, windows, etc.) of the buildings containing the affordable housing units shall be similar to and compatible with that of the market-rate units.
G. 
Other regulations are as follows:
(1) 
Every residential development applicant shall be required to submit a proposed Affordable Housing Production Plan (AHPP) at the time the application is made. The AHPP shall be a condition of the "completeness" determination. Each AHPP shall be the subject of review for consistency with the Fair Housing Act, applicable COAH and UHAC regulations, the Township's Housing Element and Fair Share Plan, the Township's Affordable Housing Ordinance, applicable settlement and development agreements, court orders (including any JOR orders and JOR condition satisfaction orders), this section and such other rules and regulations as may be applicable. This review shall be conducted by the Township Planner and/or by such other person or entity as shall be designated to administer the Township's affordable housing matters.
(2) 
The AHPP shall provide, at a minimum, the following items:
(a) 
Calculation of the affordable housing obligation resulting from the construction of residential units to be sold at market rate;
(b) 
Description of how the obligation shall be satisfied;
(c) 
Site plan and floor plan, the location of all market and affordable units; and
(d) 
The following information must be provided for each affordable unit:
[1] 
What income level the unit will be available to: moderate-income household, low-income household or very-low-income household;
[2] 
Whether the unit will be for-sale or for-rent; and
[3] 
Number of bedrooms.
(3) 
The AHPP shall be approved by the Board hearing the development application. The Board shall consider the impacts of the proposal relative to its consistency with the Fair Housing Act, applicable COAH and UHAC regulations, the Township's Housing Element and Fair Share Plan, the Township's Affordable Housing Ordinance, applicable settlement and development agreements and any court orders (including any JOR orders and JOR condition satisfaction orders).
(4) 
Compliance with the Fair Housing Act, applicable COAH and UHAC regulations, the Township's Housing Element and Fair Share Plan, the Township's Affordable Housing Ordinance, applicable settlement and development agreements, court orders (including any JOR orders and JOR condition satisfaction orders) with the approved AHPP shall be a condition of the Board's resolution of approval.
(5) 
It shall be the developer's responsibility, at its sole cost and expense, to contract with an experienced entity for the initial and ongoing administration of the controls on affordability so as to ensure full compliance with the Fair Housing Act, applicable COAH and UHAC regulations, the Township's Housing Element and Fair Share Plan, the Township's Affordable Housing Ordinance, applicable settlement and development agreements and any court orders (including any JOR orders and JOR condition satisfaction orders).

In the event that there are fewer than 55.783 acres, the maximum number will be adjusted downwards, but not upwards, based upon the following formula: number of acres times four units per acre equals the maximum number of units allowed. The selection by the developer(s) from the use and bulk standards set forth in Subsection Y shall affect the extent to which the 223 units are achieved.
Y.
