Enhancing affordable housing and reducing stress on homeowners and small developers. The City of Charleston is adopting a New Mixed Use Zoning Ordinance. This ordinance promotes affordable and re-adapative uses for individual homeowners seeking to generate income from their property to reduce the financial stress and obligations of mortgages. Also, it provides an opportunity for small to large developers to promote community through projects that focus on income diversity. The challenge, however, is and always will be finding financing for the new homeowner.
