High Occupancy Housing Plan

Next Steps and Plan Adoption Schedule

The High Occupancy Housing Plan process is entering the public hearing and adoption phase. The Citizen's Review Session is the first and a very important step for the plan. At the November 8th meeting, the Planning Commission and City Council will review a draft of the plan that has been updated based on public comments from the 60-day public review. They will take additional public comment and will provide direction to staff about any final edits or policy issues to consider before the public hearings begin. This is a critical opportunity for your input. The Planning and Zoning Commission will also hold a continuation of this session on November 30th without the City Council. This will allow an additional public comment opportunity and a chance for the Commission to confirm that all direction is being incorporated.

 The Public Hearing draft of the HOH Plan is now available here.
You can also download a lower-resolution version of the entire Planning and Zoning Hearing packet here.

What is High Occupancy Housing?

High Occupancy Housing (HOH) is generally buildings that house more than 75 persons per acre or have more than 30 units per acre in dormitory or apartment-style units. Due to a combination of pent up demand, constrained supply and the 2011 changes to the Zoning Code to promote mixed use development, interest in large multi-family housing projects has grown. The Village at Aspen Place (601 E Piccadilly Dr) is the first example of high occupancy housing built in the City. Map of Proposed and Constructed High Occupancy Housing projects

Dive into Peer Cities Research

The City has launched an interactive map to guide the public through exploring peer cities that were investigated as part of the research that went in to the preparation for the open houses.
