San Jose Planning Commission Reviews Draft Density Bonus Ordinance
Missing their promised deadline for producing a Density Bonus Ordinance, the City of San Jose finally sends their draft DBL to the Planning Commission on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. The California State Density Bonus Law, Government Code Section 65915, was first enacted in 1979. This legislation was passed to address the state’s lack of affordable housing and incentivize its development. By providing incentives for developers to include affordable housing units within their projects, developers are granting increased density for their projects, and allotted other development benefits. BIA has been tracking this issue throughout its progress, and has filed a letter of comment. To view the Staff Report for this item click here.
