Dear Residents:

On April 22, 2019 the Borough of Riverton Affordable Housing plan was deemed fair by the Superior Court of New Jersey.  We now have a conditional settlement agreement.  Over the next few months the Borough will be updating ordinances and the Housing Element of our Master Plan.  Joint meetings between the Borough Council and the Planning Board are tentatively scheduled for mid-August and early September.  Official notices will be published/posted when the actual dates are set.

In advance of the formal meetings, I would like to offer residents the opportunity to “Meet the Mayor” to learn firsthand what our Affordable Housing plan entails.  The first of these informal meetings will be held at the Gazebo (Broad and Main Streets) on Monday evening, May 6, 2019.  I will be there from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Additional dates will be scheduled shortly.

I look forward to this opportunity to answer your questions about Riverton’s Affordable Housing plan or any other question or concern you may have.  As always, you can also reach me at 856-829-5833.



Suzanne Cairns Wells, Mayor
