We require all new developments, residential and non-residential, contribute towards the provision of affordable housing. On February 16, 2021, the City Council adopted an amendment to the Affordable Housing Ordinance 1990 and associated Resolutions 14890 and 14891 amending the affordable housing obligation residential projects. The majority of the requirements are contained in Section 14.16.030 of the Zoning Ordinance of the San Rafael Municipal Code. The Zoning Ordinance can be viewed at Municipal Codes, at the Community Development Department, the City Clerk's Office, or the San Rafael Public Library.
