Community Housing Inclusionary Requirements:
Section 5.11 of the Unified Development Code (UDC) was designed to mitigate the impact of market-rate housing construction on the limited supply of available land suitable for housing. This mitigation will prevent the Town zoning regulations applicable to residential development from having the effect of excluding housing that meets the needs of all eonomic groups within the Town. This is accomplished through the establishment of community housing requirements for development, which requires a portion of all new residential development to be set aside for community housing purposes as a condition of approval.
