SUMMARY OF PROPOSED AMENDMENTS RELATING TO
HAR CHAPTER 15-218, "KAKAAKO RESERVED HOUSING RULES"

The overarching purpose of the proposed amendments to the Kakaako Reserved Housing Rules is to promote the development of additional reserved housing units and workforce housing units, and preserve the existing inventory of reserved housing units and workforce housing units in the Kakaako Community Development District. The proposed amendments will expand the sources of reserved housing units, encourage further development of for-sale and rental reserved housing and workforce housing units, preserve the existing reserved housing inventory, ensure consistency with affordable housing rules administered by other State and City agencies, and clarify specific existing provisions and terms applicable to reserved housing and workforce housing units in the Kakaako Community Development District, including the existing regulated term and equity sharing provisions applicable to reserved housing units. With respect to workforce housing, the proposed amendments will establish buyback and equity sharing provisions for workforce housing units. Additionally, various housekeeping amendments are proposed for clarification and consistency.
