Affordable Housing Options Go Before Rochester City Council

October 23, 2017 11:42 PM

(ABC 6 News) – Monday, the Rochester City Council looked at options to improve affordable housing in the area.

Rochester city staff gave the Committee of the Whole six recommendations, all of which could be adopted by the council.

One of those is a requirement that Tax Increment Financing (TIF) districts would have to build either 40% of their units at 60% of the area's median income, or 20% at 50% of the median income.

“At the end of the day, it's a balanced equation, you just have to figure out are you going for more units at less support, or fewer units with more support," Rochester City Councilor Nick Campion said.
