New RHNA Cycle, What East Bay Cities Expect
East Bay cities will soon have to update their Housing Element. The Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation is the first step in that process to determine how many residential units each jurisdiction will need to plan for in the coming years. This webinar will explain the stages of the process, how the allocations are changing and what impact it may have on local jurisdictions.

The Power of SB 35 and How Your Project Uses It
SB 35 went into effect in 2018 and provided a streamlined, ministerial process for qualifying housing projects to win approval without having to go through costly and time-consuming environmental review and public hearings.  This webinar will explain how SB 35 works, recent changes to the law and legal issues that have resulted in its application.
