Could more affordable rentals be on the way in Atlanta?

Atlanta City Council approved an ordinance that requires developers receiving tax incentives or developer subsidies to set aside a portion of units for low-income renter households. In committee, the ordinance only addressed households at 80% of Area Median Income (AMI). But after  discussion with community organizations and housing advocates, Councilman Andre Dickens revised the draft ordinance to include 15% of units for families earning 80% of AMI or 10% of units for families earning 60% of AMI.
