Updates on Affordable Housing Policies

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 5/22/2018


After convening no earlier than 9:30 a.m., following completion of the Marin County Housing Authority Board of Commissioners meeting, the Board will request from the Community Development Agency (CDA) updates on the (1) Rental Housing Dispute Resolution (“mandatory mediation”) program; (2) the potential enhancement of Multi-unit Housing Inspection Program; and (3) the development of a webpage to promote and facilitate creation of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs); and consideration of adopting a resolution clarifying the Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit (JADU) Fee Waiver Program. Through its CDA staff, the County works to preserve housing affordability and prevent displacement. More than one in every four Marin renter households spends upward of 50 percent of household income on housing, and Marin's rental market is extremely tight. The proposed updates are designed to assist struggling families to remain in Marin and create more affordable homes in unincorporated areas of the county.


The Board heard and adopted the housing policy updates.
