MBAKS has released an updated version of its Housing Toolkit, designed to help local communities facilitate more diverse, more affordable housing for our growing region. First released in 2020, the toolkit now highlights 43 specific code updates and process improvements local jurisdictions can take to enable more housing choices.

The update features two new tools and dozens of additional resources to existing tools, including Built Green incentives and more. The two new tools relate to roads and access flexibility, and periodic review of underutilized land for potential redesignation and possible rezoning. The toolkit also provides new guidance related to comprehensive plan updates.
