Inclusionary Regs Yield Little New Housing
Inclusionary and density bonus ordinances are common across California but planners report that neither have failed to result in significant new development, according to findings in a newly released survey by U.C. Berkeley’s Terner Center for Housing Innovation. The Terner Center conducted the survey in 2017 and 2018 exploring land use policy and practice in California jurisdictions. The downloadable data set and descriptive report reflect responses from 252 cities and 19 unincorporated county areas in the state, which represent 70 percent of California’s communities. The report also includes insights on a range of questions on local zoning, development approval processes, affordable housing policies and rental regulations.
