Argument In Favor Of Measure _

 

State law requires the City of Chino to update its Housing Element for the period 2021-2029. The State­mandated Regional Housing Needs Assessment (''RHNA") requires the City to identify land toaccommodate the possible development of 6959 housing units. The number of housing units is set by theState without input from local representatives. As a result, the City's proposed Housing Element updateincludes an option to develop a variety of housing, including market-rate, affordable, and mixed-useunits.

 

Meeting the State mandates under RHNA iscritical because, if the City is non-compliant, it faces potential penalties, including: losing the ability to issue building permits for those wishing to upgrade their properties; losing theability to reject inappropriate housing developments; risking court orders suspending the City's authority to issue zoning approvals; risking legal challenges by the California Attorney General and others, with potentially significant financial penalties; and losing opportunities for grant funding (including park grants). The State could also override the City's zoning powers and dictate where housing can be built.

Measure M was adopted by City of Chino voters in 1988. It ensures that current zoning densities cannot

be increased or changed unless approved by a majority of the voters.

 

The proposed new Measure          will allow the City to remain compliant with theState's housing mandates

and would not subject the City to any potential penalties for failing to comply.Vote YES on Measure ---
