Density Bonus Ordinance

Under State law (California Government Code §69915) a density bonus and regulatory concessions are available to developments that provide affordable housing.

State Density Bonus law was recently amended to provide additional incentives for affordable housing production. Section 44-305 of the Municipal Code incorporates current density bonus regulations in conformance with State law.

The City will continue to promote the Density Bonus program to encourage its use. Possible avenues of advertisement include developing a handout to be placed at the Planning and Building Counter in City Hall; these handouts may be delivered to local developers, property owners, and business groups such as the Orange County Business Council and the Building Industry Association of Southern California.
