At the July 19, 2016, meeting, the City of Paso Robles City Council approved a fee reduction of approximately 50% for Habitat for Humanity for San Luis Obispo County’s nine house affordable housing development on Vine Street. The City staff and Council have been working with Habitat over the last year to find a way to address the significant financial impediments that were keeping Habitat from going forward with the development.
The partnership that developed between the City and Habitat has not only shown the City’s commitment to the construction of affordable housing, but has also resulted in the creation of a Housing Opportunities and Constraint Committee that is currently reviewing the City’s fee structure to determine if fee reductions can be made that will further incentivize the construction of affordable and workforce housing in Paso Robles. The City, like all other cities in the County, is facing a serious housing demand that is expected to grow in the future as its population increases.
