GP-1a In the R4-8 zoning district, a transferred development right must be purchased to build at a density of 7-8 units/acre, or between 4 and 4.99 units/acre. Remove requirement for a transferred development right (TDR) in R4-8 zoning district. Removing the cost to purchase a TDR to meet permitted density, and additional density bonus, provides slightly increased opportunities for building housing units.

GP-1b In the R4-8 zoning district, a transferred development right must be purchased to build at a density of 7-8 units/acre, or between 4 and 4.99 units/acre. Allow a density bonus of up to one unit/acre if a transferred development right (TDR) is purchased. Provides slightly increased opportunities for building housing units.

 GP-2 Impact fees for transportation, parks and schools are calculated based on single-family houses, ADUs or multi-family buildings (2 or more units).  Conduct impact fee study to determine whether impacts vary with single-family house sizes. If impact of smaller houses is less, decreased cost of impact fees may provide more of this type of housing.

GP-3 General Facilities Charge (GFC) for sewer connection is based on an Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU).  One ERU generally = a single-family house, regardless of its size.  Townhouse, duplex and cottage units are charged as 1 ERU per unit; 3+ unit apartments are charged at 0.7 ERU per unit. Conduct Sewer GFC study to determine whether impacts vary with the size of houses, townhouses, duplexes, and cottage units. If impact is less, decreased cost of GFC may provide more of these types of housing.

GP-4 A portion of stormwater GFC is based on vehicular trips generated. Duplex units charged at same number of trips as single-family houses. Conduct Stormwater GFC study to determine how duplex impacts compare with those of apartments, ADUs, and townhouse units. If impact is less, decreased cost of GFC may provide more of this type of housing.
