Eastvale’s Housing Element Update (6th Cycle)

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Welcome to the City of Eastvale’s Housing Element update. The city is in the process of updating its Housing Element, which is one chapter (or element) of the city’s general plan. The Housing Element is one of nine state-required components of every city’s general plan in the state of California.

Unlike other elements in the general plan, the Housing Element must be updated on an eight-year schedule and get approval from the State Department of Housing and Community Development.

This is done because the state of California has identified the attainment of suitable living for every Californian to be of vital statewide importance.




Housing Element 101

The Housing Element of the general plan is a state-mandated policy that identifies Eastvale’s existing and future housing needs and establishes clear goals to inform future housing decisions.

The Element is drafted following the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA), which quantifies the existing and projected needs of housing by income categories for each California jurisdiction.

The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) determined each city’s housing growth need for the 6th cycle RHNA allocation plan.
