HR Council Resolution Supports Ending Inclusionary Zoning Prohibition

The Hood River City Council has passed a resolution supporting a bill in the Oregon Legislature to remove the prohibition on local governments requiring inclusionary zoning.  Inclusionary zoning allows local governments to require proposed residential subdivisions to set aside a percentage of the development for low or moderate income housing.  Hood River City Manager Steve Wheeler said removal of the prohibition could help with increasing affordable housing supply, but he points out most developments in Hood River are of a small size that would make it difficult to effectively use inclusionary zoning.  Wheeler noted Oregon is one of only two states in the nation that prohibits inclusionary zoning.
