Community Development continues its work on City Council’s Affordable Housing Goals
Over the last several months, Community Development staff have been working with City Council to identify areas in the Land Use Code for possible amendments that would help meet Council’s goal to increase the production of affordable housing units. At Council’s regular meeting on October 13th, staff will be presenting a Policy Resolution that outlines staff’s recommended areas for potential amendments.
If this resolution is approved, staff will begin a process to study these areas and present potential code amendments to the Growth Management, Affordable Housing Credits, and related sections of Aspen’s Land Use Code. This study will involve outreach and requests for input from the public and interested stakeholders.
Specifically, the following topics are being proposed for further study:
1.Affordable Housing Fee-in-Lieu
2.Certificates of Affordable Housing Credits
3.Existing development credits and incentives related to affordable housing mitigation for various development and use types.
Here is the link to Council’s Agenda for October 13th:
