Mayor Announces Moderately Priced Homes in Downtown Annapolis and Eastport

Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen announced this morning a program to offer moderately priced dwelling units for sale to qualified residents. In 2004, the City of Annapolis established the Moderately Priced Dwelling Unit (MPDU) program that requires a developer to set aside 12% of the units for sale in a new development at a price below the market rate.  These units would be available to persons or families whose income qualifies for the discounted price and can qualify for a mortgage.  Because of the downturn in the housing market, no new developments were under construction until recently.
