Affordable Housing Nexus Fee Study Outreach & Meeting

The County of Santa Clara has prepared an Affordable Housing Nexus Fee Study.  The study primarily recommends the adoption of an affordable housing fee applied to new construction on either a per unit or per square foot basis.  If adopted, by the Board of Supervisors, the fee would apply to the unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County, including residential and non-residential development, including Stanford University.  Prior to consideration of this study by the Board of Supervisors, the County would like to receive input from County residents, developers, real estate professionals, and other interested parties.

The Nexus fee study can be found here:

Please provide any comments, concerns, or feedback regarding the Nexus Study or its recommendations to Marie Walters.  She can be reached at (408) 793-0549 /
