CHICO, Calif. - The City of Chico is considering mixed-cost zoning as a possible way to fix the housing shortage.

The city held a public meeting to hear what people thought of mandatory inclusionary housing that would ensure there is low-income housing included with other types of housing.

"We need to have something far more liveable and attractive for the people who want to stay in this area or go to nearby areas," said Chico local, Grace Marvin. "It's essential to provide them with that need for housing."

No decisions were made at the September 10 meeting and the Mayor says any new zoning ordinance does not necessarily impact developments already in progress.
