San Jose Impact Fees Program Amendments Go To Housing and Community Development Commission and City Council
Amendments to the San Jose affordable housing impact fee program are scheduled to be heard at the City’s Housing and Community Development Commission on Wednesday October 13 at 5:45 pm. The item would potentially be on the November 8th City Council agenda. The potential amendments cover 3 City Council recommended changes to the AHIF ordinances:
• Developments of 19 or less units;
• Mixed-use (combination of residential and non-residential) projects; and
• Assisted living/memory care facilities for seniors. Staff is recommending that the threshold for triggering the AHIF be increased from 3 to 20 unit projects, and that mixed-use developments would pay a reduced fee of $13 per sq. ft. on the residential portion of the project. Assisted living facilities would be charged the full $17 per sq. ft.
