The City of Airdrie is making it a priority to assist with the rising concerns with affordable housing.
The Affordable Housing Principled Action Plan was passed by Airdrie City Council in June of 2023 and provides clear direction on how City administration will pursue City Council’s stated priority to “offer a full range of integrated below-market housing options that will allow residents to access housing that is achievable on their income".
The Affordable Housing Incentive Policy was adopted by City Council Sept. 18, 2023, which supports the creation of affordable housing projects within Airdrie by exempting municipal development permit and building permit fees intended to streamline the construction of much-needed affordable housing units.
City Council has recognized the need for more affordable housing options within the City to help local residents and families. City Council discussed the key recommendations that can begin to immediately address affordable housing needs in Airdrie.
