Zoning Ordinance and Affordable Housing

Some communities prohibit or discourage the development of multifamily and attached housing because of zoning policies. This style of housing has a high-density population and is therefore affordable as compared single-family. A few examples of Multi-Family housing are:
  • Multifamily apartment communities
  • Gated communities
  • Housing estates
  • Retirement communities
  • High rise apartment buildings
  • Mixed used residential (commercial and residential)
  • Condominiums houses
  • "Factory-built" homes
  • Accessory dwelling units
  • Single-room occupancies
Zoning laws is often used as a tool, to restrict affordable housing. Some examples are:
  1. Restrict the land area zoned for multifamily housing
  2. Putting a cap on the number of multifamily units that may be built in a year
  3. Prohibit the development of multifamily housing developments within a specified proximity to one another
  4. Residential density requirements that is too low to support multifamily projects
In some cases, jurisdictions may be following dated zoning policies, which are in favor of single-family low-density housing. Despite the real estate crash, in such communities it may still be difficult to meet the demand for housing due to the unavailability of affordable multifamily housing.
