Inclusionary housing. Provides that localities may create, implement, and enforce inclusionary housing programs applicable to new housing development and to conversions of previously non-residential uses into residential uses. A locality establishing an inclusionary housing ordinance shall define the term "affordable" according to the needs of the residents of that locality and shall ensure that the program is consistent with the locality's comprehensive plan and any other local or regional housing plans applicable to the locality. The program shall further one or more of several specified goals and may offer a variety of incentives, such as density bonuses and financial incentives. In developing and adopting such housing programs, the locality shall create an advisory committee and actively seek input from citizens, developers of residential and mixed-use property, real estate professionals, historic preservation professionals, redevelopment and housing professionals, anti-poverty advocates, planners, urban design professionals, and finance professionals. To the greatest extent possible, adopted programs should rely on market-based approaches to providing and maintaining inclusionary dwelling units. Read the Bill »
