Santa Clara Affordable Housing Fees
Santa Clara’s Affordable Housing program comes back to the City Council on Tuesday December 5th for final approval of the supporting ordinance and resolution. BIA involvement has been key to establishing an Ad Hoc Affordable Housing Working Group that was able to reach a consensus on requirements, in-lieu fees and impact fees towards providing Affordable Housing in the City of Santa Clara and presented them to the City Council on July 11, 2017. At this meeting, Council directed staff to prepare a draft ordinance for Council consideration. The draft ordinance includes inclusionary requirements for new residential development, in-lieu fees for residential development, impact fees for non-residential development and other considerations such as a provision for pipeline projects, a grace period, activities exempt from the fees and timing for fee payment.
