SB 828 (Wiener) Land use: housing element (RHNA)

Position:Oppose Unless Amended
Status:Chaptered by Secretary of State. Chapter 974, Statutes of 2018

This bill makes changes to the RHNA distribution process that would require certain local governments to accommodate 200% of their low and very-low income allocation in their housing inventories.  Also includes new metrics upon which to consider in the methodology and defines a healthy housing market to include at least a 5% vacancy rate.  

Would allow HCD to substitute its own methodology if it disagrees with the COG's methodology.  Finally, requires HCD to conduct an audit of the existing unmet need, particularly in metropolitan and coastal areas.
