House Riverside

The City has initiated the update to our Housing Element. Every eight years, the California Department of Housing & Community Development assesses the projected housing needs of the entire state & assigns a minimum number of housing units lớn be produced over the following eight-year period lớn the governing bodies of the state’s major regions. Those governing bodies are then responsible for assigning the individual communities within their boundaries their nội dung of those units – called the Regional Housing Need Allocation (RHNA). A new eight-year cycle will begin in fall of 2021 và, due to a combination of factors that resulted in chronic under-production of housing across the state, the expected RHNA numbers will be higher than ever in many places. Southern California alone must identify space for 1.3 million new homes over the next eight years just to lớn catch up with past under-production and expected need. Riverside’s share is a minimum of 18,415 units, & in order lớn make sure we can safely meet that minimum, the City will need lớn identify space for approximately 24,000 new homes by 2029.
