6.A. Building and Zoning – Regulatory Entitlements: Challenges and Historical Efforts to
Develop Housing in Unincorporated DuPage County
Planning and Zoning Administration Coordinator Paul Hoss presented an outline of four
challenges that developers have when developing land for Affordable Housing, along with
potential mitigating actions that the County could take to resolve these challenges. The
challenges included the availability and the cost of land, the challenges of the cost and time
inherently associated with the zoning and plat entitlement process, the regulatory environment
that developers may face regarding codes that are required for building developments, and the
fees that are associated with entitlements.
Member Gustin, Member Garcia, Member Yoo, Member Rutledge, and Member DeSart

their questions regarding the presentation and incentivizing Affordable Housing for developers.
