Help us make housing more affordable in Manassas!

Let us know how you think we can increase affordable home ownership in the City of Manassas and increase awareness of existing housing programs.

As part of this effort the Planning Commission has identified four ways we might increase the supply of affordable housing opportunities in the city:

  1.  Authorize a variety of housing types besides single family homes and townhomes to help with demand.
  2.  Adjust site and design standards to use property more efficiently while maintaining the overall look of the city.
  3.  Create a density bonus program that would reward those building vertical mixed-use development (buildings   that  are more than one story tall and have both residential and commercial uses) in the Mathis Avenue and   Sudley Road (near the hospital) areas.
  4.  Authorize accessory dwelling units (smaller, independent residential dwelling units located on the same lot as an   existing home) on a limited basis so that existing homeowners can age in place and/or receive supplemental   income.
