California requires that all local governments adequately plan to meet the housing needs of everyone in their community through the adoption of a housing element. One of the core components of a jurisdiction’s state-mandated general plan, the housing element is an essential tool with which a city or county encourages and guides local housing growth. These elements are required to be updated at regular intervals but, with the state’s housing crisis showing no sign of receding, the current update cycle is critical. Join us for a conversation about California’s latest Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) requirements, the challenges that might prevent East Bay cities from meeting their RHNA numbers and why this year’s housing element update will be so important for cities like Oakland, Berkeley and Alameda.
