Arlington Heights officials will have their next public discussion on possible changes to the village's affordable housing policy on Monday night.

The village board will meet as a committee of the whole at 7:30 p.m. in the boardroom of village hall, 33 S. Arlington Heights Road.

Trustees will discuss a draft inclusionary housing ordinance, which follows an earlier meeting in September when some board members expressed a willingness to put more teeth into their existing affordable housing guidelines.

The ordinance would require developers to include some below-market rate apartments in new construction developments, but trustees on Monday are expected to provide feedback on the extent of it.
