Affordable Housing Advisory Committee

The Affordable Housing Advisory Committee is composed of no more than 9 members who will represent the diverse viewpoints of community stakeholders on affordable housing.

The Committee will work in conjunction with City leadership and staff to implement the 2008 Affordable Housing Plan. The specific functions will be:

  • to consider affordable housing policy issues and advise City leadership about those policies;
  • to develop concrete action steps to implement the highest priorities of the Affordable Housing Plan, and to update that Plan as appropriate over time;
  • to advise City leadership and staff regarding affordable housing priorities for the investment of City-controlled funds.

Affordable Housing Policy Recommendations are the result of six months of interviews between the Affordable Housing Advisory Committee (AHAC) and non-profit, for-profit, and public housing developers. The purpose of these interviews was to learn more about developers experiences and perceptions with building affordable housing in the area in order to develop a list of recommendations for increasing future affordable developments. Through these interviews, AHAC identified top priorities and a full list of recommendations to assist City Council in developing more effective policies and incentives.
