Inclusionary Zoning

By | June 14, 2018

Local requirement and/or incentive for developers to create below-market rental apartments or for-sale homes in connection with the local zoning approval of a proposed market-rate development project. Often accompanied by “density bonus” to offset the cost of providing the below market-rate units. Below market-rate units are sometimes required to be produced at the same location as the market-rate units, but some localities have alternative compliance options including off-site options, land dedication, and “fee in lieu.”
