What are the proposed sub-districts and how many housing units are allowed within each sub-district?

There are three sub-districts proposed: a multi-family, substantially developed area, and a future open space sub-district. Within the multi-family district, the City would allow 20 units per developable area. Within the substantially developed areas the City may allow densities up to 20 units per acre. No housing units are permitted in the future open space. At least 20% of the housing units are required to designated as affordable housing under state law.
