On December 13, Council reviewed a set of recommendations from the Housing Policy Board (HPB) for implementation of a local Construction Excise Tax (CET) to support affordable housing. At that time, staff proposed to further explore policy options for structuring a CET, engage with stakeholders, and bring a recommendation back to Council. During this work session, staff will present options for implementing a CET.
