the excess dwelling unit program was great for a getting apartments on the roaster of the city. forlife/ safety issues. and also to show that we have affordable housing. however, that program has expired. i think that would be great to have some density incentives for another option for legalization. perhaps a density credit for landlords who provide accessible housing in areas with public transportation.

One issue that doesn't seem to get any attention is public money being spent on housing that is not accessible. Not just ADA but the ability to Age in place. The City should require universal design on all publically funded housing projects including loans whenever possible. The lack of accessible housing is as critical as affordable housing. But unlike affordable housing, accessibility issues can be addressed through requirements for universal design. By adhereing to only the minimum federal requirements and depending on HUD to enforce requirements after the city approvals is not good policy and is a great disservice to the community.
