Zoning Ordinance and Affordable Housing

  1. 1. The Planning & Zoning Resource Corp. (800) 344-2944Zoning Ordinance and Affordable Housing http://www.pzr.com
  2. 2. • Some communities prohibit or discourage the development of multifamily and attached housing because of zoning policies.• This style of housing has a high-density population and is therefore affordable as compared single-family. http://www.pzr.com
  3. 3. A few examples of Multi-Family housing are:• Multifamily apartment communities• Gated communities• Housing estates• Retirement communities• High rise apartment buildings• Mixed used residential (commercial and residential)• Condominiums houses• "Factory-built" homes• Accessory dwelling units• Single-room occupancies http://www.pzr.com
  4. 4. Zoning laws is often used as a tool, to restrict affordable housing.Some examples are: Restrict the land area zoned for multifamily housing Putting a cap on the number of multifamily units that may be built in a year Prohibit the development of multifamily housing developments within a specified proximity to one another Residential density requirements that is too low to support multifamily projects http://www.pzr.com
  5. 5. • In some cases, jurisdictions may be following dated zoning policies, which are in favor of single-family low-density housing.• Despite the real estate crash, in such communities it may still be difficult to meet the demand for housing due to the unavailability of affordable multifamily housing. http://www.pzr.com
  6. 6. • Rezoning can solve this issue to some extent. Requests to rezone individual lots or issuing a variance by allowing certain multifamily projects to move forward can help.• In jurisdictions where land is available, large-scale permanent rezoning can be a better solution. http://www.pzr.com
