Key Features of the Housing Element: 

  • Population and housing profile of Pico Rivera
  • Evaluation of housing constraints and resources
  • Evaluation of existing housing programs and policies
  • Identification of sites appropriate to accommodate housing at all income levels
  • Development of policies, programs & quantified objectives

Why is the City updating the Housing Element? 

The State of California requires that each jurisdiction update its Housing Element every eight (8) years to address future housing needs. The current adopted Housing Element covers the 2014-2021 planning period. The City is now planning for the 2021-2029 planning period.

Background:

The Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) process is mandated by state law and quantifies projected housing growth needs for Pico Rivera and the region. HCD and SCAG determine regional housing need projections for the 2021-2029 planning period. With some input from the jurisdictions, SCAG establishes a methodology that allocates growth needs for each city in the region.

For the 2021-2029 planning period, the City of Pico Rivera was allocated 1,024 units to accommodate the City’s share of the regional housing needs.  The City’s share of the regional housing needs is distributed by various income categories. The Housing Element must provide adequate sites to accommodate this allocated housing growth.
