CHAPTER 6A. AFFORDABLE HOUSING.* **
Article III. General Provisions.
Sec. 6A-3-20. General inclusionary housing requirements.
The affordable housing ordinance specifies requirements based on unit type
(a) For-Sale Units.
(1) Ten percent of new for-sale units
shall be affordable to low income households.
(2) This requirement shall
apply to all for-sale projects of at least eight units in size. Calculations of
required affordable units that result in a fraction of a unit shall be rounded
up to the nearest whole unit.
(3) The city council may determine the need to
implement an additional requirement for ten percent of new for-sale units to be
affordable to moderate income households, based on prevailing conditions in the
housing market. Such a finding would require an amendment to this chapter as
well as an amendment to the Spring Lake specific plan and Spring Lake affordable
(b) Multifamily Rental Units.
(1) Ten percent of all
multifamily rental units shall be affordable to low income households and twenty
percent shall be affordable to very low income households;
(2) Twenty-five percent of the units shall be affordable to very low
These requirements shall apply to all multifamily rental
projects of at least ten units. Calculations of required affordable units that
result in a fraction of a unit shall be rounded up to the nearest whole
(3) For infill multifamily rental projects of less than forty units
located within the redevelopment project area the city council may determine,
that based on substantial evidence provided by the developer, standard
application of the inclusionary requirement will make the project infeasible to
develop. For projects in which such a determination is made, the following shall
(A) The project shall receive at least two of the bonus incentives
provided in Section 25-21-25 of the Zoning Ordinance (Bonus Incentive Projects)
if the granting of such incentives will allow the developer to meet the standard
level of affordability for very low and low income households required by this
(B) If, even with bonus incentives, the project is determined to be
infeasible under the standard affordability requirements, the project shall be
required to include a minimum of at least the percentages of units affordable to
very low, low and moderate income households required by California
Redevelopment Law, as it may be amended from time to time. (Ord. No. 1393,
§ 3 (part).)
