Slow supply

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:02 am

Just in case you were wondering how well the City has done toward meeting its Regional Housing Needs Allocation, the answer is, “meh.”

The City Council will be voting to transmit the 2016 Housing Element report to the State to show the progress made toward the RHNA numbers.  This is one of those fact based reports that report exactly how much housing has come on line in a given year and not how much it “feels” like has come on line.

From the report:

In the past three years, 2014 – 2016 only 273 units have been built.  Nearly 30% of those units are of the subsidized variety.  The only 70% are market rate.

In three years only 16% of the RHNA total has been brought online.  So there has, in the span of three years, only been an addition to the supply for 273 families.  And we all wonder why there’s a housing crisis!
