Inclusionary Housing Ordinance 2018-14

The Salida City Council is considering an ordinance that will require affordable housing with new annexations, planned developments, major and minor subdivisions and condominium projects of five units or more.  For these projects, 12.5% of the residential development must be deed restricted to be affordable for resident households earning 80% or less of the Area Median Income.  The ordinance allows alternatives to including the units within the development including dedicating land for that purpose or paying an in-lieu fee.  The Council has also included incentives for including affordable housing within a development such as additional density, smaller lot sizes, smaller lot frontage, increased building coverage and reduced parking for multi-family projects.  Ten meetings on the proposed ordinance have been held between the Planning Commission and City Council.  The schedule going forward will be:

  • Tuesday, September 11, 2018: Planning Commission Work Session
  • Monday, September 17, 2018: City Council Work Session
  • Wednesday, September 19, 2018: Regional Planning Commission
  • Tuesday, October 2, 2018: City Council Public Hearing

All of the above meetings will be held at 6 PM at the Salida City Council Chambers, 448 East First Street, Suite 190.  The full text of the proposed ordinance may be found here: Inclusionary housing Ordinance.  Please contact Glen Van Nimwegen, Community Development Director if you have any questions at 719-530-2631 or
