Inclusionary Housing Study
In May 2017, the Long Beach City Council directed staff to develop an inclusionary housing policy to encourage the development of affordable housing Citywide. A citywide inclusionary housing policy would require that all new housing developments include some percentage of affordable housing. The City is conducting an inclusionary housing study to develop a policy that is tailored to Long Beach's unique housing needs.
The City's Housing and Neighborhood Services Bureau is continuously seeking ways to provide affordable housing opportunities for residents. The City is working to develop a new citywide inclusionary housing policy to help create housing that is affordable to people at all income levels.
Long Beach has over 176,000 housing units, ranging from single-family homes, low-rise apartments, and townhomes to large condominium and apartment buildings. Despite this range of housing opportunities, the City faces numerous challenges in ensuring that people at all economic levels have access to safe and affordable housing near jobs and transit.
The study will solicit feedback from a wide range of community stakeholders to help evaluate local housing needs and opportunities to effectively implement the policy.
Inclusionary Housing Study Resources and Materials
- The study seeks to design an inclusionary housing policy that best fits the needs of communities in Long Beach and create additional housing options for residents at a range of income levels.
- The City is hosting a series of community meetings, pop-up events, and stakeholder presentations to get direct feedback on housing needs related to the development of the inclusionary housing policy.
Two community meetings were held on Dec. 5 and 8, 2018 in Central and West Long Beach. The community was invited to learn more about the inclusionary housing study and provide input. View event flyer.
