Housing Solutions is an optional affordable housing incentive program that will provide new affordable and market rate housing near transit; preserve existing affordable rents; and establish a new way to fund neighborhood amenities. It will also set aside resources for investing in active transportation and park amenities within the City’s Communities of Concern.

Encouraging new housing development within a half-mile of high quality public transit will provide more housing options across all income levels, boost transit ridership, reduce vehicle emissions, and offer all San Diegans better access to services and to options for active lifestyles.

Housing Solutions will provide an innovative new incentive program to stimulate the construction of housing and improve affordability and quality of life for all San Diegans by:
