Development Projects

There are several different ways the development of affordable workforce housing occurs:

  1. Either through the City or County;
  2. By any party required to mitigate the impacts of new development under the City or County's respective land use codes; and
  3. By private interests (e.g. employers), either separately or in partnership with government and/or non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Part III of the Employee Housing Guidelines (PDF) defines the various options and opportunities available to both the private and public sector developers, including the standards for private development mitigation.
