Description

This Strategic Result supports the City Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan) as it aims to facilitate the development through new construction or acquisition of an attainable housing development for seniors of 50 units or more in support of or in collaboration with private for-profit or non-profit entities. The Comp Plan includes a Goal (N-4.5) to "Promote affordable senior housing close to services and transit by exploring a variety of programs, including but not limited to:

  • allowing higher densities in appropriate locations
  • land banking
  • increased awareness of reverse mortgage programs
  • changes to zoning regulations to allow accessory dwelling units
  • infrastructure incentives
  • reduced parking requirements

Significance

The increasing proportion of elderly residents in the city population combined with the overall increasing average age within it, necessitates attention by the City toward the provision of attainable quality senior housing. Jefferson County Human Services (JCHS) recommends increasing the amount of accessible housing units for disabled seniors, and creating programs to help older owners shoulder housing cost burdens, such as property taxes and utility bills. It also calls for increased subsidies to older renters and strengthened ties between housing and delivery of community-based healthcare services.
