RHNA – Regional Housing Needs Allocation RHNA is one of ABAG’s many responsibilities to ensure that affordable housing needs are planned for everyone in the Bay Area.
Receive updates and take public comment regarding the following:
1. Housing Element public outreach and site inventory;
2. The status of the City-owned 555 Kelly Avenue affordable housing site.
Following certification of the Local Coastal Land Use Plan (LCLUP), the City’s long-range planning efforts shifted to the Housing Element. City Council has also continued to prioritize affordable housing and has directed staff to support opportunities for development of affordable housing. The LCLUP includes numerous policies that promote the development of different types of housing. It also applies new and updated land use designations specifically intended to facilitate housing development, especially within the Town Center and through the new Workforce Housing Overlay land use designation. City’s Council approved a workplan that has staff focused on housing policy and production opportunities consistent with the LCLUP.
For jurisdictions throughout the Bay Area, the Cycle 6 Housing Element will be due at the end of the calendar year. Staff has been working with consultants to prepare the draft Housing Element and its associated environmental review. Currently, the various sections of the document are in draft form and will continue to be in development while the economic analysis of the housing sites inventory is completed.
