Density bonus bonus

Friday, December 2, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano

One of the ways in which the city is able to create affordable housing is through density bonus programs, which grant extra entitlements in exchange for community benefits such as affordable housing or money that will be used to build affordable housing. And now, enter the folks at CodeNEXT, who have, in the process of rewriting the Land Development Code, analyzed the potential for density bonus programs in Austin and are ready to deliver their preliminary findings. Specifically, on Tuesday, Dec. 6, a stakeholder meeting will be held to weigh input on this memo and these maps at the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Office, Room 400A, which is located at 1000 E. 11th St.
