The Cornerstone Inclusionary team recently presented at two conferences in California. In October, we gave a serious talk with a lighthearted name at the Nonprofit Housing Association of Northern California’s annual conference. “Units or Ducats” explored how cities should consider the policy trade-offs for on-site affordable housing requirements versus collecting affordable housing fees. We highlighted our work in Seattle to replace their voluntary inclusionary zoning program with a more robust fee-based system.
In November, at the California Association of Local Housing Finance Agencies annual conference, Cornerstone participated in a rich panel discussion about affordable housing partnerships. We brought our unique expertise in stewardship to the table, explaining how and why cities in California might consider partnering with nonprofits for quality stewardship of affordable homes.
