Garden City plans incentives for housing developers

The Associated Press

GARDEN CITY, Kan. - Garden City officials are hoping to ease a housing shortage by offering incentives for developers to build new homes.

City commissioners agreed to offer developers building permit waivers and $3,000 in cash for each single-family home they build within city limits. The City Commission approved the program at last Tuesday's commission meeting.

The city budgeted $60,000 for the program.

To qualify, a single-family home be at least 1,250 square feet and include a two-car garage. And the cash incentives are limited to the first 20 builders who apply beginning Jan. 1, 2010.

Kaleb Kentner, director of Planning and Community Development, says less than a dozen new homes a year are being built in Garden City, with only 40 to 50 homes for sale.
