Burlingame Affordable Housing Fees
At its next meeting on November 14, 2018, the Burlingame City Council will review and provide direction on new affordable housing fees and inclusionary incentives. Council will review the memorandum “Financial Analysis of Proposed Affordable Housing Program, City of Burlingame” prepared for consideration of establishing residential housing impact fees. City Staff engaged Seifel Consulting Inc. to prepare an analysis on options for residential impact fees. A key focus of the Seifel Consulting work program was to develop recommendations related to the potential adoption of new fees on residential development and the best strategies to incentivize the on-site provision of affordable housing within new development as part of the City’s housing program. Seifel Consulting is recommending fees on multifamily housing and on single family detached housing of between $15-$25 per square foot based on feasibility analysis of various construction types.
