Document Description
For the 2021-2029 housing cycle, Carson has been assigned a Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) of 5,618 units at five income levels (Extremely Low, Very Low, Low, Moderate, and Above Moderate). While current zoning within the City's major commercial corridors allows for mixed-use development, the HEU includes an action plan to promote new goals and policies and housing programs to spur infill and redevelopment in these areas. Through implementation of the housing programs, potential housing sites were identified in the Sites Inventory to show the City's ability to accommodate its RHNA allocation. Specifically, the HEU identifies that there are sufficient housing sites to accommodate its share of affordable housing through its inventory of potential sites located within underutilized non-vacant opportunity sites which promote infill development and are served by adequate infrastructure. The housing sites have been identified as part of the City's coordinated planning actions underway for the comprehensive update of the City's General Plan, which envisions new development concentrated in the downtown core, in centers outside the core, and expanding on the energy and success of recent corridor development such as that along Carson Street.
