Density Bonus Workshop at Next Planning Board Meeting

At the Monday July 28 Planning Board meeting, the Board will hold a housing workshop which is intended to gather public input about, among other things, the use of the density bonus law in Alameda. Action Alameda has long advocated that use of the density bonus law be examined as a way of providing affordable housing without changing or repealing Measure A.

The state law has been on the books since 1979 and requires every city to implement an ordinance that allows developers to build more market rate homes, the proceeds from which subsidize a mandatory number of affordable homes for low-income people and senior citizens. Alameda has never implemented such an ordinance. The law would also allow developers to side-step the Measure A probition against multifamily dwellings, when affordable housing/senior housing is provided, on a site-specific basis. Groups such as HOMES, which advocate changing Measure A to support affordable housing should support this option, but so far they have spoken against it.
