City of Chino 6th Cycle Housing Element Update (2021-2029) Project
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Document Description
An update to the City of Chino's last adopted Housing Element (referred to as the 5th Cycle).The Project includes revised goals and policies, and new, modified, and continuing implementation programs. The HEU will be prepared to establish policies, procedures, and incentives in its land use planning and development activities that result in maintenance and expansion of the housing supply to adequately accommodate the City’s anticipated housing needs. The Housing Element will institute policies intended to guide City decision-making and establish an Implementation Program to achieve housing goals through the year 2029. Regularly-scheduled meetings with the Planning Commission, Joint City Council and Planning Commission, and workshops, may be used as a public forum to further discuss associated housing issues, receive public input, discuss options, and provide direction regarding the content of the Housing Element. Per CGC §65584(d), the HEU will also address existing and projected housing needs through the accommodation of the City’s Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation. The RHNA allocates housing need based on future estimates of housing unit growth need over the RHNA planning period (2021-2029). The City was allocated a total of 6,978 additional units from the RHNA. To accommodate its RHNA allocation, the City has identified 122 candidate housing sites which could accommodate up to 8,528 additional housing units within the City. The identified candidate housing sites would accommodate units for a 22 percent buffer beyond the 6,978-unit RHNA requirement. The City does not propose any site development on a candidate housing site/parcel. Future housing development could occur on these candidate housing sites/parcels, according to the General Plan land use and zoning as proposed under the Housing Element and as local conditions dictate with timing at the discretion of each individual property owner. Future development of these parcels will require site specific environmental review and entitlement approval. Further, approximately 4,435 of the candidate housing units are located in the proposed Mixed Use (MU-OV) and Affordable Housing overlays (AFF-OV) which will require eligible voters’ approval of Measure M General Plan Initiative, a separate approval process from this HEU.
