Density Bonus Law: qualifications for incentives or concessions: student housing for lower income students: moderate-income persons and families: local government constraints
1) This bill would require a city or county to grant a density bonus and certain incentives/concessions if the developers includes a specified percentage of units for low/moderate income (30% below market rate). Increases density bonus to 40% for 11% very low income.
2) Requires reporting for low-income student units included in any density bonus
3) This bill would remove the specified adverse impact on the physical environment from the list of reasons for which a city or county is authorized to refuse a concession or incentive. Prohibits affordable housing impact fees.
4) No reimbursement is required by the state to cities or counties for costs mandated
There is no specific provision for High Risk Fire Areas and it is unclear whether exceptions could be made for those areas.
