What would prevent re-development that includes only the highest density housing type - for example, only quadplexes get built but no duplexes? Would there be required percentages of each housing ty

Duplexes will be allowed on all residential lots, whereas quadplexes, for example, might only be allowed on residentials lot above a minimum lot size (and therefore in fewer locations). Also, the city is working with an economic consultant to evaluate the feasibility of certain housing types. If the report indicates that some housing types might be less likely to be built, then City Council could consider policies that might incentivize some of the housing types.

Currently the city is not evaluating a requirement that a certain percentage of each housing type to be built to ensure an even mix of home types.
