How much affordable housing should developers be required to build?
The Planning Commission considered the Inclusionary Housing study and made recommendations to staff. Watch video and view materials here.
An inclusionary housing policy enables jurisdictions to require or encourage developers to set aside a certain percentage of housing units in new or rehabilitated projects for low- and moderate-income residents. Inclusionary housing policies ensure that every community provides a range of housing choices and creates new affordable homes without needing government subsidies. These policies can provide developers with options to build the affordable units on-site, offsite or to pay in-lieu fees into a local housing trust fund.
