Public Comment Period to Open Soon on Allocation Methodology for Determining Local Housing Need
Residents, businesses and stakeholders soon will have the opportunity to weigh in on three options for determining local housing needs as part of the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) process.
The three allocation methodology options were presented Monday to the RHNA Subcommittee of the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), which must develop a proposed plan for how to allocate existing and projected housing need once the six-county region’s overall need is determined. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is expected to announce that regional number in late August, covering the planning period of October 2021 through October 2029.
A number of community members and stakeholders commented during Monday’s meeting, offering varying points of views on the methodology options and the RHNA process generally.
