POLICY 35

Innovative Housing Types: Pursue innovative housing types and creative housing programs to help meet existing and future housing needs.

The demand for affordable housing choices combined with changing demographics and housing desires often results in innovative concepts for housing. Sometimes these housing types, such as cooperative housing, bungalow courts, and single room occupancy units, are not new; they were prominent at other times in history, in other parts of the United States or in other countries. Having a broad understanding of both renewed and new housing options and the opportunities they present will help the City meet the demand for housing choices.

ACTION STEPS

The City will seek to accomplish the following action steps to pursue innovative housing types and creative housing programs to help meet existing and future housing needs.

  1. Expand knowledge of emerging housing industry trends.
  2. Review existing policy, programs and regulations to identify and remove barriers to innovative and creative housing options.
