Document Description
For the 6th Cycle 2021-2029 Housing Element Update, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) has determined that the City’s Regional Housing Need Allocation (RHNA) is 8,895 dwelling units. As part of the proposed Housing Element Update, the City must demonstrate to the State that there is available capacity within its jurisdictional boundaries to meet its numerical housing target. Pursuant to State Housing Law, the proposed Housing Element Update would include the following components: analysis of the City's demographic, economic, and housing data; analysis of barriers to producing and preserving housing, review of City housing policies; identification of goals and policies to implement the plan; and a listing of sites that could accommodate the RHNA.
