§ 196-15.1 Workforce Housing District.

[Added 2-18-2005 by L.L. No. 1-2005]
A. 
Purpose.
(1) 
There is a workforce housing crisis on the east end of Long Island, and many young persons and families are unable to remain in their communities because of the lack of suitable housing. The Board of Trustees of the Village of Quogue recognizes the dire need to provide suitable housing to its workforce residents and is establishing this Workforce Housing District (WHD) to encourage the private sector to develop such housing to serve the needs of its workforce residents.
(2) 
It is the specific purpose and intent of the WHD to allow for the development of moderate-density housing on sites within the Village that would not otherwise yield suitable workforce housing.
(3)
