Chester, NH

Chester had a version of IZ for cluster housing that provided affordable units at different income levels. That system produced more than 70 affordable units. It was repealed in 2007 and replaced with a version that offered a density bonus for age-restricted units. In 2020, the bonus was adjusted to encourage Workforce Housing instead. (Under New Hampshire law, homes are considered “Workforce Housing” when they meet the requirements of RSA 674:58-61 being affordably rented to a three person household earning no more than 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI) or sold to a four person household earning no more than 100% AMI.)
