Affordable Housing Parking Regulations

PDF icon Affordable Housing Parking Regulations

On November 13, 2012, the San Diego City Council approved the Affordable Housing Parking Regulations PDF icon Section 142.0527 . The regulations consist of amendments to the Municipal Code and the City's Local Coastal Program that implement the recommendations of the San Diego Affordable Housing Parking Study (December 30, 2011) prepared by Wilbur Smith Associates.

The regulations are applicable to only regulated, rental, affordable housing units where the tenant pays no more than 30 percent of gross household income towards gross rent. It also applies where a specified number of units are affordable to very low income and/or low-income households for a term of at least 30 years.

The regulations apply parking ratios that are unique to the affordable housing type and the locational characteristics of the project.

The amendments are effective Citywide inclusive of the Planned District Ordinances.

The project also includes the adoption of a Land Development Manual for Calculating Affordable Housing Parking Requirements.

The amendments became effective in on November 14, 2013.
