Case No. 2017-001061PCA-05 - INCLUSIONARY AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROGRAM & REQUIRED MINIMUM DWELLING UNIT MIX ORDINANCE – The Planning Commission will hold a hearing on an ordinance amending the Inclusionary Affordable Housing Program and establishing a required dwelling unit mix. The Planning Commission considered this ordinance on June 15, 2017 [Board File No. 161351 v5 Inclusionary Affordable Housing Fee and Dwelling Unit Mix Requirements]. Since the Commission hearing, the Board of Supervisors made a material modification regarding the required minimum dwelling unit mix in Planning Code Section 207.7, which is being referred back to the Commission pursuant to Planning Code Section 302(d). The material modification would set a limit on the number of studio units contained in residential development projects to 30% of the entire proposed project [See revised Ordinance [Board File No. 161351 v6 Inclusionary Affordable Housing Fee and Dwelling Unit Mix Requirements]; and affirming the Planning Department’s determination under the California Environmental Quality Act; making findings of public necessity, convenience, and welfare under Planning Code, Section 302; and making findings of consistency with the General Plan, and the eight priority policies of Planning Code, Section 101.1.
Preliminary Recommendation: Approve a modified ordinance and make findings of consistency.
