AUTHORIZE THE CHAIRMAN TO SIGN THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING AGREEMENT TO PRESERVE THE EXISTING HOUSING COVENANTS AND RESTRICTIONS
This process is how we are able to have affordable housing in Redondo Beach. Houses are deed restricted to be sold at a price where a household with an average income can afford it. In order to buy it, you must be within an affordable income category.
In 2004, the City Council adopted a Senior Housing Ordinance. The Planning commission subsequently approved a 192 unit senior citizen condominium project, “Breakwater”. A condition of the project approval requires that the developer enter into an Affordable Housing Agreement to provide & restrict by deed 12 units as affordable for moderate-income and 8 units for low-income for at least 55 years.
Low-Income family is defined as a household where the combined gross income of all persons residing in the unit does not exceed a maximum of 80% of the area median income.
Moderate income family is where the combined gross incomes of all persons in the unit is above Low-Income but does not exceed a maximum of 120% of the area median income.
