She stated she <br /> agreed with the first two recommendations on LIHF but would like to substantially raise the fees <br /> for non-residential very close to the maximum, because Pleasanton was an attractive place for <br /> businesses and the fees would not be a deterrent and the rate should provide the necessary <br /> units for the employees. She stated she would like to increase residential fees based on square <br /> footage or number of bedrooms and that tier pricing was critical. She suggested reconsidering <br /> the basis for the low-income housing study, especially for residential. She requested more data <br /> on the expenditure of funding and what percentage was directed at adding more housing versus <br /> the other programs, because HCD was looking at the number of built units. She stated it was <br /> worth exploring a housing overlay zone but the ordinance should align with State law for short <br /> term. <br /> Planning Commission Minutes Page 5 of 7 February 9, 2022 <br />a business person would be equal with building a unit and paying an IZO. <br /> Ms. Clark explained the basis for the inclusionary zoning requirement, and the amount of the <br /> low-income housing fee were different and therefore, there was a disjuncture between the two <br /> fees (i.e. the in-lieu fee does not cover 100 % of the cost of constructing an affordable unit). <br /> Planning Commission Minutes Page 3 of 7 February 9, 2022 <br />
