The Town of Windsor is updating its Inclusionary Housing Ordinance and will be holding a community meeting to solicit community input on the Town’s Inclusionary Housing practices. The Inclusionary Housing Ordinance was established by the Town Council to mitigate the impacts of market-rate residential development on the demands for more affordable housing. It requires new residential development projects with 10 or more units to accommodate the provision of housing that is affordable to lower-income households and provides several options for developers to satisfy their inclusionary requirement, including on- or off-site construction, dedication of land or payment of an “in-lieu” fee.
The purpose of the community meeting is to educate residents about the requirements of the Town’s Inclusionary Housing Ordinance, current housing conditions and trends, costs to develop housing, and the impacts of an in-lieu fee on the feasibility of development. Meeting participants will also be invited to share their values and preferences with respect to the provision of affordable housing. Input received at this meeting will be considered in a technical report being prepared by the Town’s housing consultant for presentation to the Town Council later this summer.
The community meeting on the Inclusionary Housing Ordinance Update will be held on:
Saturday, June 24, 2017, 10:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m.
Town Hall Council Chambers
9291 Old Redwood Highway, Building 400
Interested persons should contact the Town’s Community Development Director, Ken MacNab, by phone at (707) 838-5335 or by email at: email@example.com for additional information.
