When: This Thursday 6/3 5:00-6pm

Are you interested in learning about housing affordability initiatives in Denver?

Would you like to give your feedback to the City of Denver on the options being explored?

Lowry United Neighborhoods invites our Lowry community to a virtual townhall with Denver’s Principal City Planner to discuss the Expanding Housing Affordability project.    Topics of conversation will include:

* A citywide zoning incentive that would allow projects to build taller buildings if more affordable units are included,

* An update to the city’s linkage fee, which requires all new development to either include affordable housing or pay a fee that supports Denver’s affordable housing fund, and

* Potential changes to state law on “inclusionary housing,” which refers to requirements that cities can establish for new for-sale or for-rent developments. Currently, state law puts strict limits on what Denver and other cities statewide can require.
