Bill Summary

In 1981, the general assembly enacted legislation that prohibits counties and municipalities (local governments) from enacting any ordinance or resolution that would control rent on private residential property.

The bill clarifies that an ordinance or resolution that would control rent on either private residential property or a private residential housing unit does not include an ordinance or resolution enacted by a county or a municipality that establishes, as a condition of obtaining approval for the development of a project, inclusionary housing or inclusionary zoning requirements.

As used in the bill, 'inclusionary housing' or 'inclusionary zoning' means a program enacted legislatively and with opportunity for public input that requires, as a condition of obtaining approval for the development of a project, the provision of residential units affordable to and occupied by owners or tenants whose household incomes do not exceed a limit that is established in the ordinance or resolution.

The bill specifies different components that may be included in an inclusionary housing program.
