Sonoma County operates density bonus programs to assist private developers to build rental and for-sale housing that is affordable to low and moderate income households. Through these programs, developers are allowed to build at densities up to 100% greater than those for which the land is zoned, in exchange for guarantees that the housing will be rented or sold to eligible households at affordable prices. The Permit and Resource Management Department (PRMD) process all land use and project applications. Please contact PRMD at (707) 565-1900 for further information.
