Flexible Inclusionary Zoning

From YIMBYwiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Inclusionary Zoning is a housing policy approach in which creators of new housing are encouraged or required to offer a certain share of housing to be made affordable by people with low to moderate incomes; or alternately to pay 'in-lieu fees' to support such housing. See more at: Inclusionary Housing.

Inclusionary policies usually set fixed percentages of housing or in-lieu fee requirements, but there is interest in how the requirements might be made more flexible to account for varied and changing circumstances, such as: more or less demand level in different areas; changing business conditions and business cycle; changing construction costs; etc.
