City to Hold Final Community Workshops for its Housing Plan

The City of San Bernardino has announced it will be holding three final community workshops to discuss its proposed Housing Element before seeking approval from the Mayor and Council to submit the plan to the State of California for certification.

California law requires that all cities develop a Housing Element and housing programs to meet their "fair share" of existing and future housing needs for all income groups. The Housing Element contains goals, policies, and programs to facilitate the development, improvement, and preservation of housing that meets the forecast need.

The state’s Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) calls for San Bernardino to plan for 8,123 additional housing units, ranging from affordable to market rate housing. San Bernardino’s proposed Housing Element outlines a plan for the city to achieve its assigned allocation of new housing units by 2029.

City staff will be on hand at the workshop to provide an overview of the plan, obtain input, and answer questions.

Workshops will be held:

Monday, July 17 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at Shandin Hills Golf Club, 3380 Little Mountain Dr, San Bernardino, CA 92405

Tuesday, July 18 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at New Hope Missionary Baptist Church - Family Life Center, 1505 West Highland Ave, Room 24, San Bernardino, CA 92411

Thursday, July 20 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at San Manuel Gateway College, 250 South G Street, Room #2, 3rd Floor
