Density incentives

  1. Density incentives are a useful tool for local govern-ments to provide community amenities or other bene-fits through the SALDO process. In return for afford-able housing, recreation facilities, or transportation improvements, developers may be eligible for reduced parking or setback requirements, or higher densities. Density incentives are used in tandem with many of the other zoning approaches below.
