    EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP –  Egg Harbor Township Committee is expected to approve a new affordable housing project at its Wednesday, Sept. 17 meeting.

    If approved, the project would create up to 135 units of affordable “family housing” by the Marlton-based Michaels Development Company at the intersection of Doughty and Fire roads.

    The township is required by the state to provide affordable housing, despite years of court battles attempting to get its many existing mobile home parks and apartments used as credit toward that obligation.
