May is Affordable Housing Month, and Fremont is celebrating in more ways than one!
City Council Proclamation
On Tuesday, May 11, the Fremont City Council officially proclaimed May as Affordable Housing Month in Fremont. This proclamation supports the City’s commitment to providing affordable housing in Fremont for families across all income levels. In the last year, the construction of over 540 new affordable units in Fremont has been completed.
Affordable Housing Ordinance
The City is in the process of updating Fremont’s Affordable Housing Ordinance. The purpose of the ordinance is to address the need for affordable housing related to market-rate housing production and to foster an adequate supply of housing in Fremont for all persons at all economic levels. The goal is to bring the draft ordinance to the City Council for consideration and adoption in summer 2021. For more information, please visit the City’s Affordable Housing Ordinance webpage.
