Affordable housing in the City of Charlottesville; Consumer Price Index. Amends Chapter 693 of the Acts of Assembly of 2008, which authorized the City of Charlottesville to require developers to either provide Affordable Dwelling Units or make a contribution to the city's affordable housing fund in connection with certain projects. The bill substitutes the Washington-Baltimore Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) for the Charlottesville MSA specified in the 2008 Act regarding the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not publish a CPI for the Charlottesville MSA; rather it includes Charlottesville within the Washington-Baltimore MSA. Read the Bill »
