WEBINAR – Alternative Approaches to Affordable Housing Development
September 21, 2017 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This training explores Shared Equity Models, Linkage Fees, Inclusionary Zoning Ordinances, and other localized approaches to producing and preserving affordable housing. For example, a community land trust (CLT) is a form of shared equity that maintains ownership of underlying land through a ground lease which also sets resale pricing to protect the affordability of the housing as time goes on. The Town of Jupiter will serve as a case study for methods of providing workforce housing. Participants will learn about the challenges and highlights experienced throughout the process for the first municipality in the state of Florida to adopt a workforce housing ordinance with both a linkage fee and inclusionary zoning requirements.
