Bay Area housing plans off to a slow start

Under California law, local cities have until January 31, 2023 to submit “housing elements” – detailed plans on how they will meet state mandated housing goals.

As of last week, California Department of Housing and Community Development had rejected 14 of the 15 Bay Area drafts i had reviewed, with Alameda being the lone exception.

Under the state law, the nine-county region is responsible for approving over 441,000 new homes at all income levels between 2023 and 2031.
