City Council Adoption July 23, 2019:

On July 23, 2019, the City Council adopted the Inclusionary Housing Amendments for the Program which will:

  • Require Program projects with ten units or more to provide at least 10% of the units onsite at rental rates affordable to households at the Moderate Income level (80% to 120% of Area Median Income), and
  • Require Program projects with five to nine units to either build a unit affordable to households at the Moderate Income level or pay a $25 per square foot in-lieu fee.

The ordinance is available here and will be in effect August 22, 2019. However, applications for development pursuant to the Program that were submitted and deemed complete before the effective date of this ordinance may proceed in accordance to the provisions of the Program that existed as of the date the application was deemed complete.
