Strategy LU1.3: Develop incentives that support stronger links between housing and economic development and stimulate compact growth.

Strategy Description

There are a variety of tools local jurisdictions can employ to support compact growth and incentivize stronger links between housing and economic development. By funding infrastructure improvements and providing grants that support development in targeted growth areas, jurisdictions can promote projects that support local growth objectives. In addition, jurisdictions can waive fees, expedite processing, and provide density bonuses for projects that meet locally-set criteria.
