Affordable housing dwelling unit programs; ordinances. Provides that a locality may, in its zoning ordinance establishing an affordable housing dwelling unit program, exempt nonprofit organizations that develop housing for low- and moderate-income persons from subdivision provisions that impair such organizations' ability to subdivide land. In addition, owners of multifamily dwelling units are required to provide notice to the housing authority having an area of operation in which they are situated of their intent to sell or transfer ownership of such unit(s). Failure to provide the notification will not be the basis for invalidation of any sale, but may subject the terms of the sale to special review by the locality or the attorney for the locality to ensure that such sale has not resulted in a violation of any law by the transferring owner.
