John Nolon and Tiffany Zezula, attorneys at the Pace Land Use Law Center, participated in a panel discussion in Hastings-on-Hudson this week on affordable housing. The forum on Wednesday was hosted by the Hastings community center to share information with residents on the steps the village is taking to comply with the requirements of a lawsuit that Westchester County settled over the issue of affordable housing.
According to an article in The Daily Hastings, the Land Use Law Center “did an analysis of zoning codes already set in place in Hastings and compared them with a set of model ordinances set by the county. As part of the affordable housing initiative, Hastings will be required to actively advertise housing to middle and low income families that qualify.”
John Nolon said of the settlement: “It’s an effort to be sure barriers to people looking for affordable housing are removed.”
