6th Cycle Housing Element Update
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Document Description
Through the Housing Element update process, the City is required to demonstrate that it has the regulatory and land use policies to accommodate its assigned Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA), which amounts to 3,016 housing units in Antioch. Local governments are not required to build the housing. Rather, the actual development of housing is anticipated to be constructed by developers. However, the Housing Element is required to demonstrate potential sites where housing can be accommodated to meet all the income levels of a jurisdiction’s RHNA. If there are insufficient sites and capacity to meet the RHNA allocation, the Housing Element is required to identify a rezoning program to accommodate the required capacity. Additionally, this Housing Element update triggers the update of the Environmental Hazards Element and Environmental Justice (EJ) policies. The Environmental Hazards Element will identify policies and programs that reduce the risks to life and property caused natural phenomena such as fires, floods, droughts, earthquakes, and landslides. The EJ policies will promote health outcomes in low-income areas that are disproportionately affected by environmental pollution and other hazards.
