Thirteen sites have been identified for proposed rezoning in the Draft Housing Element, including properties with current single-family residential and commercial zoning.
Document Description
The 2008-2014 Housing Element and Implementation Programs project establishes a framework for how the City intends to satisfy state-mandated affordable housing production requirements outlined in the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA). The RHNA assigns housing unit production quantities for each city in California; Yorba Linda has been assigned a production requirement of 2,039 units distributed across varying income categories. The RHNA represents the minimum number of housing units Yorba Linda is required to plan for in its Housing Element by providing "adequate sites" through General Plan and zoning. As the RHNA represents a planning target and not a building quota, so long as the City provides sufficient sites and does not impose constraints to development, the City is not required to construct the 2,039 units and is not penalized for falling short of its RHNA goals. The Housing Element has identified thirteen (13) properties in the City that potentially could be reclassified at residential densities from 10 to 30 dwelling units per acre in order to facilitate future development of multi-family housing.
