20.02.010 Authority And Purpose:

This Title is enacted pursuant to the provisions of Government Code section 65915. The purpose of this title is to encourage developers of otherwise market rate housing to include affordable units or senior housing units in their proposed projects through consideration of a density BDnus over the otherwise maximum permissible number of units. The density bonus would operate to increase the number of units for a site so that the per-unit cost of construction may be reduced, with the savings passed on in the form of affordable housing for a portion of the project. (Ord. 398 §1, 1997).
