Minimum Threshold & Percentage Required

The requirement to provide a certain percentage of Moderately Priced Dwelling Units (MPDUs) applies to any new development in City of Annapolis with 10 or more units. This requirement applies even if the development is phased in over time.

The percentage of MPDUs required is 6% of the total number of units for rental properties and 12% of the total number of units in the development for sale properties. Developments that receive no density bonus are still required to provide the required number of MPDUs unless a waiver is approved by the Planning and Zoning Director in accordance with the requirements of Section 20.30.060 Contribution in Lieu of Developing MPDUs.

The actual percentage and number of MPDUs required is set by the City of Annapolis Planning and Zoning Department as part of the review process for the project.
