The Jobs Housing Nexus Analysis prepared for the city in 2016 determined that the legally supportable affordable housing linkage fee on new commercial office development was $129.49 per square foot to pay for the need for additional affordable housing caused by the new development. This number was adjusted to $50.50 for Boulder’s “share” of housing need based on percent of workforce currently housed n the city (39%); The city staff recommended that the Council adopt a linkage fee of $15 per square foot, and the council adopted a fee of $12. Would you favor increasing the affordable housing commercial linkage fee? If at what level should it be set?
