Regional Housing Needs Allocation

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 12/7/2021


NOTE: This is a remote-only session and will not take place in the Board of Supervisors chamber.

Agenda Item #10: No earlier than 2:30 p.m., the Board will convene a joint workshop with the Planning Commission to review and discuss guiding principles for sites selection and strategies for addressing the state-mandated Regional Housing Need Allocation (RHNA) for housing production in unincorporated areas of Marin for the 2022-2030 planning period. The RHNA is the number of housing units unincorporated Marin needs to plan for in the County's Housing Element update every eight years. The government agency that sets affordable housing production goals for every Bay Area jurisdiction has notified the County of its assigned number of homes to meet the housing needs in unincorporated areas through 2030. The number is 3,569 units for unincorporated areas, up from 185 units for the current eight-year cycle. In November 2020, the Board submitted a letter to the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) objecting to the increase.  


The Board conducted the workshop and provided feedback to staff.
