Document Description
The Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) quantifies the need for housing in each region statewide and is determined by the California Department of Housing and Community Development. The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) is responsible for allocating the RHNA to each city and county in its region, which includes Elk Grove. Elk Grove's total RHNA for the 2021-2029 planning period is 8,263 units, allocated to specific income groups. The City currently has an adequate number of zoned residential sites to meet RHNA requirements for the above moderate-income group. It has identified 43 possible housing sites (18 existing sites and 25 new candidate sites) located within City limits that could accommodate housing to meet the RHNA very low, low, and moderate-income groups. The Project also includes an update to the General Plan Safety Element to incorporate emergency access route information and additional policies on community resiliency.
