Flagstaff City Council approved zoning code modifications Tuesday to support future affordable housing developments.
The zoning code amendments will allow developers to request code modifications for new projects featuring 100% affordable housing, except in historic, landmark or airport overlay zones.
Dan Symer, Flagstaff Zoning Code Manager, said the increased flexibility was needed to assist new projects in meeting the city’s development standards. He added that the changes could incentivize additional affordable housing projects in the city’s future.
Potential modifications to the code include, but are not limited to, building height, density, lighting standards and parking space requirements.
