Inclusionary Housing is important because it:
Offers families across the economic spectrum better access to good jobs, good schools, good transportation, safe neighborhoods, quality commerce, and recreational and cultural amenities;
Provides communities with the benefits of economic, racial and social diversity;
Strengthens local economies so that employers can attract and retain a diverse workforce, including essential workers like nurses, teachers, police officers, and service industry workers; and
Protects the environment by reducing commutes, fostering compact forms of residential living; and contributing to the development of walkable pedestrian environments.
