- Directing Department of Community Planning & Economic Development staff to return to the Housing Policy & Development Committee in November 2018 with recommended amendments to the Unified Housing Policy to support an inclusionary zoning ordinance.
- Directing Department of Community Planning & Economic Development staff to prepare zoning code text amendment for consideration by the City Planning Commission and Zoning & Planning Committee in November 2018. This interim inclusionary zoning ordinance would apply only to projects that propose a substantial increase in the allowable residential development capacity. The interim inclusionary zoning ordinance would be effective for land use applications which are complete on or after January 1, 2019, through the adoption and effective date of a comprehensive inclusionary zoning ordinance.
- Directing Department of Community Planning & Economic Development staff to return to the Housing Policy & Development Committee in November 2018 with a recommended inclusionary zoning ordinance framework to support the affordable housing goals of the Minneapolis 2040 Comprehensive Plan. This framework will be used as the basis for the development of a comprehensive inclusionary zoning ordinance in 2019. The framework recommendations shall apply City-wide, and be feasible, as recommended by a third-party consultant.
