Ease Affordable Housing Development Regulations

Local jurisdictions can ease affordable housing development regulations with by-right access and expedited review following a rules-based assessment process. This is intended to speed up construction and increase the housing supply; thus, specific criteria must outline who, where, and what will be impacted, and how impacts will be monitored.


Can decrease local jurisdiction revenues in some cases (by-right), but also decreases time costs and unpredictability for developers. Requires advocacy to gain community support.


Implementation requires local approval time, and on-going planning, development and enforcement.
