SANTA BARBARA A public workshop will be held at 6 p.m. today at the Santa Barbara Public Library to review the city’s Average Unit-Size Density Incentive Program.
The AUD Incentive Program was adopted in 2013 by the City Council to “provide for new multi-unit residential development, particularly rental housing,” while also allowing for “for increased densities based on unit size, with greater densities available for smaller average unit size,” according to a news release.
The program includes “incentives related to parking, setbacks, and open space to further encourage construction of multi-unit residential development projects,” according to the news release.
The AUD Incentive Program is nearing the trial period and amendments to the program are being considered.
The first public workshop was held April 24, focusing on housing densities and parking structure.
The workshops are conducted by the Planning Division of the Community Development Department.
