Hank and Big Ben Debate Inclusionary Zoning
Hank and “Big” Ben talk about inclusionary zoning and as often happens don’t see eye to eye. Hank is much more inclined to go with the city proposal of developers of more than 12-unit projects set aside 15% of habitable square footage at 80% of area median income or 10% of habitable square footage at 60% AMI, (roughly $53,000 for a family of two) or some combination thereof. Hank doesn’t see that proposal as being at odds with putting people first and feels it offers developers a needed option. Ben looks more favorably on just the 60% of AMI threshold or lower.
