AUD Incentive ProgramPlanning Central

Average Unit-Size Density Incentive Program

On July 30, 2013, the City Council adopted the Average Unit-size Density (AUD) Incentive Program Ordinance.  The AUD Program Ordinance carries out a key implementation action of the City’s 2011 General Plan.  The intent of the Program is to support the construction of smaller, more affordable residential units near transit and within easy walking and biking distance to commercial services and parks.  Increased densities and development standard incentives are allowed in most multi-family and commercial zones of the City to promote additional housing.  Rental, employer-sponsored, and limited equity housing cooperative units that provide housing opportunities to the City’s workforce are especially encouraged.  The Program will be in effect for eight years or once 250 units have been developed in the High Density designation and certain C-M (Commercial Manufacturing) zoned properties, whichever occurs first.  Please click link below to view the ordinance.

Employer-Sponsored Housing

Interest in implementing an Employer-Sponsored Housing (ESH) Program prompted the City to hold a community forum to inform local employers about the City’s proposed Program and explore ways to facilitate the participation of local employers in the Program.  Please click on link below to view forum summary and panel discussion.
