Affordable housing open house coming up
The city has scheduled an open house next week to review and invite comment on a draft affordable housing strategy plan.
The draft addresses ways to preserve existing affordable housing, with an emphasis on mobile home parks.
It also addresses potential changes to the city’s and property owners’ responsibilities to residents when redevelopment projects cause the displacement of people from mobile home parks.
City officials are working on development incentives for the private sector to induce more affordable housing, including the creation of a zoning district that gives a “density bonus” for including affordable housing in a project; another is delaying the collection of some of the impact fees until a project is completed.
Feedback from the open house will be shared with City Council when it considers adoption of the plan March 5.
