DENVER (KDVR) — Denver City Council passed a plan to make housing more affordable in the city on Monday night.

Officials said the policy has been in the works for more than a year.

The policy requires new developments across Denver to ensure a certain percentage of homes built are deemed “affordable.”

The percentage and level of affordability required varies depending on the area.

According to Denver officials, the average median income in a two-person household is about $94,000.
