Choice in housing matters in our community. We must offer housing choices that make our community more affordable and diversify housing options for all who wish to call Boise home. To help achieve these goals, the City of Boise proposes the following amendment to Boise City Code Chapter 11-06-03.4 to offer property owners a housing bonus in exchange for helping improve housing affordability, housing options, and transportation choice in our community.
Property owners will be able to receive the housing bonus in exchange for the following public benefits:
- The construction or preservation of affordable housing options
- The construction of transit-supportive development
- The reuse of existing buildings.
The proposed housing bonus ordinance offers five incentive options.
