COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 180722

 

Directing the City Manager to cause the performance of a nexus study to evaluate the establishment of residential inclusionary zoning requirements and to identify a source of funds for the study.

WHEREAS, in November, 2017, the City Council passed unanimously Resolution No. 170825 that directed the City Manager to provide information on the overall state of housing policy at the federal, state and local levels; and

WHEREAS, Resolution No. 170825 also directed the development of a report on the overall state of housing resources, housing policy, programs and funding options for the City, including the role of affordable housing in the development of the City; and

WHEREAS, the City’s establishment of inclusionary zoning regulations could assist in increasing its supply of housing units with a greater degree of affordability; and

WHEREAS; prior to any establishment of such regulations, the City should study their benefits and impacts related to the development of the City’s overall housing supply; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. To enhance access to affordable housing in all neighborhoods of Kansas City, the City Council directs the City to develop an inclusionary zoning policy, which will develop greater affordable and varied housing density opportunities throughout the City.

 

Section 2. The City Manager is hereby directed to provide within sixty (60) days of the effective date of this Resolution policy guidance and a timeline in establishing a program that requires inclusionary zoning in relation to all projects incentivized, funded all or in part, or built in cooperation with the City, including but not limited to areas having recently received significant infrastructure upgrades.

 

Section 3. The City Manager is further directed to identify a source of funds for a nexus study, and any consultants or other experts to be retained to assist the City in establishing its inclusionary zoning policy shall not be retained until approval of their retention by City Council.

 

Section 4. The review to be conducted by the City Manager shall involve inclusionary zoning characteristics, involving not only affordability, but also considering variety in density requirements and residential design standards in targeted areas.
