Bill Summary

The bill authorizes the board of county commissioners of any county, by duly enacted ordinances, resolutions, or other forms of binding law, to establish and create a program that implements inclusionary zoning within an unincorporated area of the county. The bill defines 'inclusionary zoning program' to mean a program adopted by a county government that encourages or requires a given share of the housing units in a proposed development to be priced in a way that is affordable for low- and moderate-income households.

Nothing in the bill is intended to challenge or to affect the legal status of any such program implemented and in effect prior to the effective date of the bill.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
