In New Jersey, how much affordable housing is enough?

         Karen Yi reports for the Asbury Park Press:

The past does matter,  according to one state judge.
Advocates for housing priced for people in the middle or at the lower end of the income scale are celebrating a ruling by Superior Court Judge Douglas K. Wolfson, sitting in Middlesex County, who said towns must account for a backlog of housing needs that accumulated when state oversight of such efforts failed.
The ruling comes weeks before New Jersey's Supreme Court is expected to settle the question of whether municipalities should accommodate affordable-housing needs built up during a 16-year "gap period" when the state agency tasked with ensuring compliance disintegrated.
