Susan Frost, Special Projects Coordinator, related that under state law, density bonuses are intended to provide affordable housing units while offsetting the costs within the residential development. In 2019, new state law changes adopted became active. In Livermore, only three projects utilized density bonuses in the last 15 years. Two of those projects involved the city as a partner.

Residential projects providing 5% of the units for “very low” income families and projects providing 10% units for “low income” families would qualify for a 20% bonus. Projects providing 10% of the units for “moderate income” families would receive a 5% bonus.
