X. Inclusionary Housing Subcommittee Report and Recommendation
Town and MLH staff conducted both a population and peer resort evaluation of inclusionary housing policies. As a result, with in depth discussion and review, the Housing Fee Committee recommends all new residential (transient and non-transient) development be required to build on-site workforce housing at a rate of ten percent of all newly-constructed units within the development. Furthermore, all workforce housing units will target the Area Median Income (AMI) levels of and between 60-120% AMI. Small single family and rehab projects will be exempt.
The in-lieu fees along with the implementation level details are still in need of review. Additionally, the required AMI percentage break-outs per development will need to be formulated. Staff and committee will develop final recommendations to these and other outstanding policy related matters.
A special meeting will be held on November 9, at 6 pm in the MLH office for further review and discussion of this matter.
XI. Pursuant to Government Code Section 24956.8, the Board will hold a closed session to discuss property negotiations- Multiple Properties
