H-11 Affordable Housing on Large Sites

The City shall facilitate the development of housing for lower-income households on large sites identified in the Sites Inventory by encouraging land divisions and specific plans resulting in parcels sizes that facilitate multifamily developments that include units affordable to lower income households in light of State, Federal and local financing  programs. The City shall provide incentives for the development of affordable housing, including but not limited to:

  • Priority to processing subdivision maps that include affordable housing units;
  • Expedited review for the subdivision of larger sites into buildable lots where the development application can be found consistent with the General Plan, applicable and master environmental impact report;
  • Financial assistance (based on availability of Federal, State, local foundations, and private housing funds); and
  • Modification of development requirements, such as reduced parking standards for seniors, assisted care, and special needs housing on a case-by-case basis.
