Housing Code Audit

The primary purpose of 2022 Summit County Code Audit for Workforce Housing is to identify barriers to workforce housing in the Land Use and Development Code (Code) and provide recommended edits to remove said barriers as well as update standards and procedures to ensure that the County can support the desired housing as identified by the Board of County Commissioners and relevant policy documents. The key topics/tasks to address at a minimum include:

  • Develop a streamlined or expedited development review process for workforce housing
  • Develop an inclusionary zoning program
  • Incorporate incentives such as a density bonus program to encourage the development of workforce housing
  • Provide recommendations to the County’s short term rental program to preserve workforce housing
  • Create standards for shared amenity housing
  • Create standards for tiny home development
  • Review and provide recommendations for the County’s existing TDR program as it relates to work force housing
  • Provide other recommended edits to the Code to encourage the development of workforce housing
