Inclusionary Housing Working Group

Purpose

Develop policies and practices that will encourage mixed-income development across zones allowing for single family and multi-family units. This should include:

  • examination of current impediments to site development and related solutions that provide the underlying framework for residential development (e.g., grading schedule, road interconnectivity, application of single-family height restrictions in greenfield development, minimum lot and home sizes, development of Accessory Dwelling Units on owner-occupied lots), while maintaining strong environmental protections
  • by-right density increases for inclusion of permanently affordable units, while maintaining appropriate setbacks and buffers to support existing developments
  • public infrastructure cost participation with inclusion of affordable units, along with identified sources of funding, such as SPLOST, Tax Allocation Districts, and other funds
  • a partnership framework with local affordable housing providers to ensure permanent or long-term status of affordable units
