(A) Analyzing census and other data to identify racial and ethnic groups least represented in the population;
(B) Announcements/advertisements in publications and other media that will reach minority populations;

(G) Collection of basic racial and ethnic information for all residents and persons on the wait list for the development.
(4) In an affordability plan or affirmative fair housing marketing plan for an affordable housing development, preferences in application procedures or occupancy for existing residents of the subject municipality shall not be utilized unless members of racial and ethnic groups identified as least likely to apply receive equally-weighted preferences.
(5) The maximum sale price, resale price, or rent for any affordable unit in a set-aside development shall be determined as set forth in section 8-30g-8 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies.
(6) In an affordability plan for a set-aside development, a description of the projected sequence in which price-restricted dwelling units will be built and offered for occupancy shall consist of a narrative and schematic plan describing the construction sequence of the proposed site development plan, the location of price-restricted and market-rate dwelling units within that sequence, and a demonstration that such sequence will result in compliance with the set-aside requirements of section 8-30g of the Connecticut General Statutes and sections 8-30g-1 through 8-30g-11, inclusive, of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies.
(7) A commission, by regulation, may require that an affordable housing application that petitions for a rezoning of the property that is the subject of the application shall be accompanied by a conceptual site plan. Any such regulation, however, shall not require the submission of the type of plans, studies, calculations or similar detailed information that will otherwise be required in connection with site development, subdivision or resubdivision plans which, when approved, will serve as the basis for issuance of a building permit.
