Density Bonus Ordinance

The City of La Palma will revise the density bonus provisions of its Affordable Housing Regulations (Chapter 26, Sections 26-59 to 26-64 of the Municipal Code) to conform to California Government Code §69915. Current law (SB 1818) allows a density bonus of up to 35% for qualifying projects as well as reduced off-street parking.

In order to promote the program, the City will develop a hand-out to be placed at the Planning and Building Counters in City Hall and will distribute copies in the mail to local developers, property owners, and business groups such as the Orange County Business Council and the Building Industry Association of Southern California.
