Wealth Creation and Affordability in Inclusionary Housing


Balancing Wealth Creation and Affordability
A workshop at the National Inclusionary Housing Conference
October 31, 2007

Inclusionary housing ordinances can produce vital community assets and valuable personal assets. Should the programs seek
to preserve these community assets, or allow residents of the affordable units to reap the full rewards of homeownership?
This session examined various techniques for balancing these two important goals, including resale provisions that utilize
shared appreciation formulas and community land trusts.
