Slide17:  Slide18:  Slide19:  Challenge of Zoning:  Challenge of Zoning Absence of product and design diversity Compatibility of new housing in existing communities Regulations to support development of age-restricted units came out of 2000 General Plan Age-restricted units required to have % of MIHUs, community center and to apply Universal Design Guidelines Construction by conditional use Get 35% open space Allows twice the units per acre Floating zone, Planned Senior Community (PSC), allows 8 units/acre Howard County requires that Universal Design be incorporated in all new Age-Restricted Units:  Howard County requires that Universal Design be incorporated in all new Age-Restricted Units Multi-family Apartment or Condominium: Accessible path between parking, dwelling units, and common areas that meet ADA standards Single Family Detached and Attached: 'No-step' access to community building and all dwellings Front door to be 36' wide with exterior lighting of entrance All interior doorways at least 32' clear width 36' wide fully accessible route throughout first floor Complete living area including master bedroom and bath on first floor (or elevator accessible if multistory apartment) Howard County requires that Universal Design be incorporated in all new Age-Restricted Units:  Howard County requires that Universal Design be incorporated in all new Age-Restricted Units Lever handles on interior and exterior doors Structural blocking for grab bars in walls in bathroom walls near toilet and shower Clear floor space of 30’ x 48’ for maneuvering in bathrooms and kitchens Wall switches and outlets 15' minimum and 48' maximum Howard County also has guidelines for “desirable” and “custom” features.:  Howard County also has guidelines for 'desirable' and 'custom' features. Desirable features include: Covered main entry Entry door approach with 18' – 24' clearance at side adjacent to handle Lever handles on kitchen and bathroom sinks Howard County also has guidelines for “desirable” and “custom” features.:  Howard County also has guidelines for 'desirable' and 'custom' features. Custom features include: Handrail on both side of all stairs Multi-level or adjustable kitchen countertops and work spaces Closet rods adjustable from 3’ to 5’6' Curbless shower Installation of grab bars in bathroom Concerns about No-Step Access:  Concerns about No-Step Access Required but not to front entrance Standard construction by national builders show little flexibility of larger houses on smaller lots Basements: support beams above grade Slope away from house for drainage Difficulty of meeting 1:12 grade Slide26:  Bolingbrook, IL Slide27:  Providing no-step with a ramp No-step entrance through garage Some Policy Recommendations:  Some Policy Recommendations Reduce required number of units for age-restricted developments in certain zones Improve compatibility of new construction with existing neighborhoods Further promote use of Universal Design Encourage construction of accessory apartments Promote more creative and innovative housing design and products. HOUSING AFFORDABILITY FOR OLDER ADULTS:  HOUSING AFFORDABILITY FOR OLDER ADULTS Largest barriers to affordability in the County are land costs, HOA fees and a very tight housing market More difficult to apply standard measures of affordability since assets play a larger role than income Down payment is a major factor in determining affordability Seniors who rent typically pay a higher percentage of their income than is allowed for non-seniors – some in excess of 50 percent of income Housing Affordability for Older Adults:  Housing Affordability for Older Adults 10% of all age-restricted units must be moderately priced. The Moderate Income Housing Unit requirement only creates housing for seniors with income less than 80% of median. Few homes or rental units are affordable for people in this income range Even with available equity upon sale of a house, few units are available with less square footage or lower price Is a need for housing for those with incomes between 80% - 110% of the median, as well Purchasing Affordability:  Purchasing Affordability * Yet the average house price in Howard County is over $400,000 Some Program and Policy Recommendations:  Some Program and Policy Recommendations Zoning incentives to increase the number of Moderate Income Housing Units in age-restricted housing, including: Eliminate indoor community space requirement if a higher percentage of MIHUs is provided or if the site is within two miles of a Senior Center. For larger age-restricted developments, allow higher density as an incentive for increased MIHU percentage. Increase senior housing allocations to include a higher percentage of required MIHUs Revise the Zoning Regulations to encourage new market-rate dwellings to be built as smaller units. Some Program and Policy Recommendations:  Some Program and Policy Recommendations Acquire houses that can be renovated to incorporate universal design elements. Tax Increment Financing legislation Tax relief to moderate-income renters of age-restricted units, parallel to the real estate tax relief provided to homeowners with incomes below a certain threshold. CHANGING DEMANDS REQUIRE NEW APPROACHES:  CHANGING DEMANDS REQUIRE NEW APPROACHES Pressure of growing number of older adults, available land and housing prices require County to look at housing differently. Need to focus on existing housing more than new construction. Need to respect existing communities and impacts of infill. Work with others to examine all ways to meet the needs and be creative. Firm in seeing compliance with Universal Design requirements Thank YouStephen Lafferty, Deputy DirectorHoward County Department of Planning & Zoning3430 Courthouse DriveEllicott City MD 21042PH: (410) [email protected]:  Thank You Stephen Lafferty, Deputy Director Howard County Department of Planning andamp; Zoning 3430 Courthouse Drive Ellicott City MD 21042 PH: (410) 313-2350 [email protected]
