Longmont City Council to Resume Consideration of Affordable-housing Mandate

November 26, 2018

Longmont Times-Call

Longmont’s City Council on Tuesday night is to resume considering an ordinance that would generally mandate that 12 percent of the livable square footage in a new residential development be dedicated to units affordable to low- and moderate-income home buyers and renters.

The council directed staff to make a number of changes to an earlier version of the ordinance before giving it initial approval in a 6-1 vote Nov. 14.

The council may order additional revisions during a 7 p.m. Tuesday meeting at the Civic Center council chambers, 350 Kimbark St., Longmont.

The council’s resumption of its discussions about the measure, which is to include a public hearing, could precede a final vote on the ordinance or a second direction to staff to amend it further and bring it back for another vote in December.
