Document Description
According to the City of Fullerton's Housing Element Update, the City does not contain sufficient sites with appropriate zoning to accommodate the City’s Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA). As such, the City identified the proposed Program as one policy action to help facilitate housing production within the City in order to meet the City’s RHNA goals. The Fullerton Housing Incentive Overlay Zone Program (Program) would create an overlay zone that allows a property owner to develop multi-family housing on a parcel with a non-residential underlying zoning classification in exchange for providing a specified percentage of deed-restricted affordable housing units. The Program would apply to 759 parcels across the City totaling 593 acres. Implementation of the Program could result in a buildout potential of 35,611 units. The Program would not directly result in the construction of the total buildout potential of 35,611 units. Instead, the Program would facilitate the construction of housing units with the adoption of this zoning program.
