§ 9.36  OBJECTIVES.
   Developments with opportunity housing units must meet the following objectives:
   (a)   Dispersion. Opportunity housing unit dispersion means the distribution of opportunity housing units throughout all areas of the city in order to avoid concentrations of only affordable housing and to encourage racial and economic integration. Opportunity housing units built pursuant to this chapter must meet all requirements of the city code and any additional requirements for units as specified in this chapter.
   (b)   Integration. Opportunity housing units in a housing development must be mixed with, and not clustered together or segregated in any way from market rate units. Opportunity housing units in a housing development must be distributed across all unit sizes proposed in the development, including: efficiencies, one, two, and three or more bedroom units.
   (c)   Design. Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, opportunity housing units must be comparable in construction quality and exterior design to the market rate units constructed as part of the development.
   (d)   Phasing plan. If the development contains a phasing plan, the phasing plan shall provide for the proportionate development of opportunity housing units concurrently with the market-rate units. No phasing plan shall provide that the opportunity housing units are the last built units in a development.
   (e)   Timing of construction. A certificate of occupancy for market rate units within the development must not be issued until a certificate of occupancy is issued for a proportionate amount of opportunity housing units within the development. In phased developments, opportunity housing units must be constructed and occupied in proportion to the number of units in each phase of the residential development.
