Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) policies require developers of market rate housing to reserve a portion of the units they create for affordable housing. IZ links the production of affordable housing to market rate housing, expanding the supply of affordable units at no (monetary) cost to government, and creates mixed-income housing throughout the jurisdiction. The policies must take into account the market realities of housing development, however, if too onerous they will discourage development, fewer units of all types will be created, and the policy will not contribute to the city's overall housing goals. This San Diego ordinance requires at least 10% of the total dwelling unit in a proposed development project should be affordable to targeted rental or ownership households. The ordinance applies to different ownership models such as condominiums and new construction.
