Increasing Available Housing through Infill Development

City Of Sacramento   
Urban | |
Sacramento’s 2035 General Plan sets a goal of ensuring that the production of housing will meet future needs. To meet this goal the General Plan establishes policies that require the promotion of quality infill development specifically focused on the creation of affordable units. The City plans to offset the costs of developing affordable housing through deferred fees and financial incentives including water development fee waivers and sewer credits.

Not only will this help to eliminate brown zones in the city, but the increase in affordable housing will help to reduce homelessness in the city and increasing the health of any previously homeless citizens who can acquire affordable shelter through this new policy.
