- 6th Cycle Housing Element Update and Program EIR
- The City of Del Mar (City) is updating its Housing Element for the 6th Cycle Planning Period from 2021 to 2029. This includes amendments to the City's Community (General) Plan, and subsequent amendments to its Zoning Ordinance and Local Coastal Program (LCP). To comply with State Housing law, the City’s Housing Element must be updated to ensure the City’s policies and programs can accommodate estimated housing growth need identified in the San Diego County Association of Government’s (SANDAG) Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation for the Planning Period. Per the RHNA, the City is allocated 163 dwelling units (units) to accommodate the estimated growth need at various income levels. The Housing Element Update (HEU) includes a candidate site analysis to accommodate the 163 unit RHNA and an estimated “carryover” of 46 units from the 5th Cycle Housing Element (total of 209 units to be included in the HEU), and an additional analysis of candidate sites to accommodate a 30 percent RHNA buffer of 49 units to address future “no net loss” provisions of Senate Bill 166. As required by State Housing law, including Assembly Bill 1397, the HEU must identify the City’s ability to accommodate this estimated growth through available sites and appropriate zoning.
