HAND is proposing revisions to City Code 18.97, Mitigation of Residential Housing Loss. The intentions of the revisions are to: 1) clarify the language to focus on the net loss of housing, from residential to non-residential use that would result in a net loss of dwelling units, and 2) simplify replacement parameters or fee assessment processes. HAND is seeking to effectively mitigate future loss of housing which can cause displacement of residents and increase pressure on the housing market. A public Open House was held on February 21, and soon HAND staff will present to the Planning Commission for their input. More to come.
