"More than a dozen cities and counties -- ranging from the City of Los Angeles to San Benito County -- are currently considering adopting inclusionary programs... which require housing developers to set aside 10% to 20% of their units for low- and moderate-income residents. ...The bigger question, however, is what happens when these policies are put into place. Inclusionary ordinances may look good when adopted, but the political reality of implementation can be different, as local jurisdictions are reluctant to require construction of the units onsite or to build housing with the 'in-lieu fees' ... instead of requiring construction."
