DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS BEFORE WE GO INTO THIS? UM, CURRENTLY HAVE ONE PUBLIC COMMENT THAT WAS SUBMITTED BY EMAIL, AND I WOULD ASK THAT ANYBODY WHO IS IN THE MEETING WHO WISHES TO SPEAK BEFORE WE START THIS WORKSHOP, IF THEY WOULD RAISE THEIR HAND VIA ZOOM BY STAR NINE OR RAISING IT THROUGH THE ZOOM.

YEAH.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU.

I DO NOT SEE ANY HANDS RAISED, SO I'LL GO AHEAD AND READ THE COMMENTS THAT I RECEIVED.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

DEAR COMMUNITY DEVELOP DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, JOANN LOMBARDO.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR QUICK RESPONSE AND TAKING THE TIME TO COMMUNICATE WITH ME IN RESPONSE TO BIG BOX STORES AND REAL RETAIL ESTABLISHMENT USAGE DECREASING, AS YOU STATED, DUE TO ONLINE, SHOPPING IS JUST AN EXCUSE TO DEVELOP HIGH DENSITY HOUSING AT THE CROSSROAD CENTER IN DESPERATION.

AGAIN, COSTCO PETSMART AND LOWE'S ARE BIG BOX STORES, AND YOU'RE DOING GREAT EARNING PROFITS OF 20% ABOVE AVERAGE.

THERE IS STILL A LARGE PART OF THE COMMUNITY THAT LIKES TO SHOP BIG BOX STORES.

SENIORS, FOR EXAMPLE, ARE NOT BIG ONLINE SHOPPERS.

THERE ARE PLENTY OF BIG BOX STORES IN THE LOCAL AREA, INCLUDING WALMART BEST BUY TARGET SAM'S CLUB.

DICK'S SPORTING GOODS, LOWE'S HOME DEPOT, PEPBOYS, NORDSTROM RACK, ET CETERA.

TOYS R US IS STILL IN BUSINESS WITH A MODIFIED BUSINESS PLAN USING A 10,000 SQUARE FOOT BUILDING INTERACTIVE TOY DEMONSTRATIONS AND OPEN PLAY AREAS.

BRINGING TOYS R US BACK TO CHINO HILLS WOULD BE POPULAR WITH THE COMMUNITY.

WE HAVE A GENERAL PLAN THAT WAS DEVELOPED WITH COMMUNITY INPUT.

IF THE GENERAL PLAN CAN BE REVISED WITH JUST A STROKE OF A PEN, WHY HABIT THE CITY SHOULD STICK TO THE PLAN AS ADOPTED WITH THE COMMUNITY'S BLESSING.

I'M CURIOUS WHY MIXED JUICE IS SO SUCCESSFUL IN OTHER CITIES, AS YOU STATED IN YOUR LETTER.

BUT TO MY KNOWLEDGE, WE HAVE ONLY ONE MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT AND CHINO HILLS MIXED USE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME IN AN ARTICLE IN THE CHINO CHAMPION NEWSPAPER DATED MARCH 13TH, 2021.

THE MAYOR OF CHINO SAID THAT THE CITY HAS NOT HAD SUCCESS WITH MIXED JUICE.

I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN YOUR THEORY THAT MAKES JUICE IS APPROPRIATE AT THE CROSSROAD CENTER SITE.

WHEN YOUR NEIGHBORING CITY HAS LITTLE SUCCESS WITH IT, IF MIXED USE IS SO GREAT, WHY ISN'T IT? WHY WASN'T IT USED AT THE SHOPS? I REALIZED THAT NOW IN DESPERATION, THE CITY IS PLANNING A MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT ON THE DIRT LOT, ADJACENT TO CITY HALL, SIMILAR TO WHAT IS BEING TOUTED FOR THE CROSSROADS CENTER.

MIXED USE DEVELOPMENTS BRING LOTS OF PROBLEMS, ESPECIALLY NOISE AND MORE TRAFFIC.

PEYTON DRIVE ALREADY SOUNDS LIKE A FREEWAY, WHICH IS TERRIBLE ENOUGH, COUPLED THAT WITH THE CLOSE PROXIMITY OF THE 71 FREEWAY AND THE NOISE PROBLEM IS MAGNIFIED.

ADDING A MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT TO THIS AREA WILL MAKE THE NOISE PROBLEM, EVEN WORSE, MORE TRAFFIC,

[00:05:01]

ALSO RESULTS IN MORE POLLUTION FROM ALL VEHICLES.

THIS IS AN AREA THAT ALREADY HAS HEAVY TRAFFIC, ESPECIALLY THE NIGHTMARE CAUSED BY THE COSTCO GAS STATION.

RESIDENTS IN THIS AREA ARE NOT INTERESTED IN MORE TRAFFIC THAN THE PROBLEMS THAT COME WITH IT.

ACCIDENTS.

PHIL CONGESTION INCREASING THE TRAFFIC BY ADDING A MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT COULD CAUSE CONSUMERS TO AVOID AREA AND AFFECT EXISTING SMALL BUSINESSES WHO WANTS TO PATRONIZE A RESTAURANT IN A PLACE WHICH IS HEAVILY CONGESTED, NOISY AND DIFFICULT TO DRIVE TO THE DINING EXPERIENCE IS RUINED BEFORE YOU EVEN GET TO THE RESTAURANT.

MIXED USE DEVELOPMENTS ARE NOT A SURE THING BY ANY MEANS.

I DID NOT SEE THE PROPERTY AT THE CLOSE VELANO.

GREG NORMAN GOLF COURSE HAS ONE OF THE SITES BEING CONSIDERED FOR HIGH DENSITY HOUSING, EVEN THOUGH THE OWNER HAS BEEN QUITE VOCAL ABOUT HIS DESIRE TO DEVELOP CONDOS ON THE SITE, THE NORTHERN AREA OF CHINO HILLS HAS TAKEN THE BRUNT OF THE HIGH DENSITY HOUSING.

THE CITY NEEDS TO TAKE THE CROSSROADS CENTER OFF THE LIST AND PUT THE HIGH DENSITY HOUSING SOMEPLACE ELSE.

THERE'S ABOUT THREE MORE PARAGRAPHS TO THIS LETTER.

SO THIS, UM, COMMENT WILL BE POSTED ON THE WEBSITE SO THAT THE PUBLIC CAN HAVE THE FULL COMMENTS.

AND COULD WE GET THE NAME OF THE, UH, BRIAN PETRA? OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS, MR. PETROFF.

ALL RIGHT.

WITH THAT, WE WILL MOVE ON TO OUR ONE HAND RAISED IN THE ZOOM APP.

DID YOU ALRIGHT? LET'S GIVE IT A SHOT.

OKAY.

THIS WOULD BE JIM GALLAGHER.

ALL RIGHT.

GOOD AFTERNOON, JIM.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

YEAH, THANK YOU.

UM, I WASN'T REALLY GOING TO SPEAK, BUT I WAS ACTUALLY, I WAS THINKING ABOUT SPEAKING IN FACT, IN FAVOR OF MIXED USE.

THAT'S WHY I DECIDED TO RAISE MY HAND AND I DO BELIEVE THAT THE CROSSROADS SHOPPING CENTER IS IDEAL FOR THAT.

ESPECIALLY IF THERE'S THE RIGHT INGRESS AND EGRESS ESTABLISHED, THEY COULD PUT ABOUT THREE TO 500 UNITS YOU'LL AS YOU'LL SEE THERE.

AND I THINK IF IT'S PLANNED OUT PROPERLY, IT WILL BE LESS INVASIVE AS THE PEOPLE THAT WOULD USE THE STORES.

THERE WOULD BE THE ONES THAT LIVE THERE AND THEY WOULD ALSO BE FREEWAY CLOSE.

I ALSO ADVOCATE FOR THE SHOPS TOO, AS A MIXED USE AREA, WHICH HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE WITH THAT IDEA IN MIND, AND ALSO THE CROSSROAD SHOPPING CENTER, WHICH HAS A LOT OR NOT CROSSROADS, I'M SORRY, THE COMMONS, WHICH DOES HAVE A LOT OF OPEN SPACE, AS WELL AS THE SPACE NEXT TO THE BATCH TEMPLE.

TO ME, THEY'RE ALL IDEAL BECAUSE THEY ARE FREEWAY CLOSE AND THEY DO MEET THE NEEDS, THE REQUIREMENTS OF BEING CLOSE TO A TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR.

AND, UH, OTHER THAN THAT, I LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT YOU, UH, UNCOVER YOURSELVES AS YOU HAVE THE DISCUSSION TODAY.

AND THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO DO THIS.

THANK YOU, MR. GALLAGHER.

WE APPRECIATE THE COMMENTS.

OKAY.

ALL

[ HOUSING ELEMENT WORKSHOP]

RIGHT.

WITH THAT, WE WILL MOVE ON TO OUR HOUSING ELEMENT WORKSHOP.

SO ITEM TO RECEIVE PUBLIC INPUT, PROVIDE STAFF DIRECTION ON HOUSING ELEMENT, UPDATE, UPDATE PROCESS.

GOOD.

OKAY.

WE GOT ONE MORE HAND RAISED.

OKAY.

MR. JOHN BRUNER.

MR. BRUNER.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS AFTERNOON, MR. BURNER, CAN YOU HEAR US OKAY.

SORRY.

I WAS MUTED.

NOT A PROBLEM.

YES.

YES, SIR.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS AFTERNOON.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO GIVE US YOUR COMMENTS.

I DON'T KNOW IF I'M PUTTING THIS IN THE RIGHT PLACE FOR THE MEETING.

I'M, I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE COLLATERAL.

I'M NOT, I'M NOT SURE I'M SAYING THAT RIGHT.

EITHER, UH, PROPERTY.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU IF THERE ARE PLANS TO PUT 180 UNITS ON THAT PROPERTY, HOW MANY STORIES WOULD IT BE? I'M SORRY, MR. BRUNER.

I, WE DIDN'T HEAR WHICH PROPERTY YOU REFER TO.

WOULD YOU MIND RESTATING THAT? OKAY.

BOLERO.

OKAY.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ALL RIGHT.

I'M SURE THAT WILL BE MENTIONED AS WE GO FURTHER DOWN THE MEETING.

IS THERE ANY OTHER ITEMS SIR, THAT YOU'D LIKE TO BRING UP? UH, NO.

I LIVE, UH, I LIVE ADJACENT TO THAT PROPERTY AND, UH, I'M VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THE TRAFFIC THAT WOULD BE GENERATED, UH, WITH ADDITIONAL HOUSING THERE.

IN ADDITION TO THE TRAFFIC THAT IS ALREADY AT TIMES, VERY HEAVY, UH, WITH PUBLIC EVENTS.

SO THAT'S MY CONCERN.

I'LL REST.

AND, UH, LISTEN TO THE COMMENTS.

THANK YOU, MR. BRUNER.

WE APPRECIATE YOU JOINING US THIS AFTERNOON.

THANK YOU FOR THE COMMENTS BEFORE WE MOVE ON.

I'M JUST GOING TO ASK FOR ONE LAST TIME.

IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER PUBLIC COMMENTS, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND AT THIS TIME.

OTHERWISE WE WILL JUST MOVE ON WITH THE WORKSHOP.

THANK YOU.

MA'AM I DO NOT SEE ANY HANDS RAISED, BRIAN.

I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION FOR CHERYL, CHERYL.

UM, CAN WE CAN'T SEE IT ON OUR END? HOW MANY MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ARE ON THIS CALL? I'M JUST CURIOUS.

WE HAVE

[00:10:01]

A PROXIMATELY 20 ATTENDEES, BUT WITH THAT IT'S 29, INCLUDING THE BEST CLINICIAN, BUT THAT'S INCLUDING STAFF AS WELL.

THANK YOU.

WONDERFUL.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

WE HAVE ONE MORE COMMENT PLEASE.

OKAY, MR. GARY, TWO-TONE ALL.

ALRIGHT, MR. STONE, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS AFTERNOON.

UH, WE'D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR COMMENTS.

YES.

HELLO.

I LIVE WITH JASON, UH, TO THE, UM, CAVALERA RANGE AS WELL.

I'M JUST CONCERNED ABOUT THE HEIGHTS OF THE BUILDINGS IF PROPOSE WOULD BE BUILT, UM, AND THE CRIME RATE GOING UP AS WELL AS PARKING ISSUES AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO PARK OVERNIGHT IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD TO VISIT FAMILY MEMBERS AND SUCH AT THE, UH, PROPOSED, UM, PROJECT SORT OF VOICE MY CONCERNS ABOUT THE OVERALL TRAFFIC CONGESTION PARKING ISSUES AND THE HEIGHT TO THE BUILDING.

THAT'S BASICALLY ALL I HAD TO STATE.

YES, SIR.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THOSE COMMENTS.

THERE ARE NO MORE HANDS RAISED.

ALL RIGHT, GOOD.

NOW WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ON TO OUR REPORT.

ALL RIGHT.

UH, MAYOR JOE'S CITY COUNCIL.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TODAY.

THANK YOU TO OUR COMMISSIONERS.

STAFF WILL COME FORWARD FROM A VARIETY OF POSITIONS IN THE CITY TO WALK US THROUGH, UH, TODAY'S WORKSHOP.

AS YOU'RE AWARE, THE PLANNING COMMISSION I BELIEVE HAS MET IN FOUR SEPARATE OCCASIONS, WORKING THROUGH THE WORKSHOP.

UH, TODAY'S GOAL IS TO PROVIDE THE COUNCIL DIRECT ACCESS TO STAFF EARLY IN PROCESS.

UH, THE COMMISSIONERS ARE HERE.

SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THEIR DELIBERATIONS ALONG THE WAY? AND WITH THAT, I'LL JUST ASK OUR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR, LEN LOMBARDO TO START US OFF.

THANK YOU, BEN, MR. CITY MANAGER, UM, MAYOR MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL MEMBERS OF THE COMMISSION AND ALSO MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC, AS BEN MENTIONED, WE'VE HAD FOUR WORKSHOPS WITH THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

SO TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO SUMMARIZE AS BEST WE CAN, THE MAJOR TOPICS AND DISCUSSIONS THAT WERE DISCUSSED DURING THOSE WORKSHOPS.

WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO COVER EACH OF THESE TOPICS AS BRIEFLY AS WE CAN.

AND OVERVIEW OF THE HOUSING ELEMENT, UH, AN OVERVIEW OF THE PROCESS OF THIS UPDATE, THE SIX CYCLE HOUSING ELEMENTS SCHEDULE THE REGIONAL HOUSING NEED ASSESSMENT KNOWN AS THE RENA DEFAULT DENSITIES, PUBLIC PARTICIPATION, COMMENTS AND RESPONSES AVAILABLE SITE CRITERIA, REVIEW OF POTENTIAL SITES, EXISTING MULTI-FAMILY AND NEXT STEPS.

SO HOUSING ELEMENTS IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER HAVE BEEN AROUND SINCE 1969, UM, CALIFORNIA STARTED SAYING THAT EVERY COMMUNITY SHOULD HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR FAIR HOUSING TO THE YEARS THAT IT HAS GOTTEN MORE AND MORE RIGOROUS.

THE HOUSING ELEMENT IS ONE OF SEVEN OF THE REQUIRED ELEMENTS OF A GENERAL PLAN, AND EVERY CITY MUST HAVE A GENERAL PLAN.

WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THE HOUSING ELEMENT.

IT'S THE ONLY ELEMENT OF THEM ALL THAT HAS REQUIREMENT FOR UPDATES.

AND IT'S NOW EVERY EIGHT YEARS, THERE IS ALSO A RIGOROUS BODY OF LAW RELATED TO THE HOUSING ELEMENT, AND IT'S VERY CLOSELY REFINED IT AGAIN, IT IS THE ONLY ELEMENT WITHIN THE GENERAL PLAN THAT HAS THAT.

SO THAT INDICATES THAT THE STATE VALUES HOUSING AS A KEY COMPONENT OF QUALITY OF LIFE.

IT'S THE ROLE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT TO, TO, UM, TO ADMINISTER AND ENSURE COMPLIANCE ARE KNOWN AS HCD.

AND WE'RE NOW IN OUR SIXTH CYCLE HOUSING ELEMENT.

AND THAT COVERS YOUR PERIOD FROM JUNE 30TH, 2021 THROUGH OCTOBER 15TH, 2029.

SO DOES THAT MEAN SINCE THE CITY HAS BEEN INCORPORATED, THIS IS THE SIXTH TIME WE'VE HAD TO DO IT.

THIS IS THE SIXTH TIME IN ALL.

AND I DON'T REALLY KNOW IF IT WAS THIS.

I THINK THE SECOND EITHER THIRD OF THE SECOND WAS THE FIRST TIME THE CITY PARTICIPATED IN.

SO VERY QUICKLY WHAT'S THE PROCESS.

SO WE'RE STARTING THE PROCESS NOW.

SO THE FIRST IS TO DETERMINE THE REGIONAL HOUSING NEEDS ALLOCATION ASSESSMENT, AND THAT HAS BEEN DONE.

WE UPDATE OUR PREVIOUS HOUSING ELEMENT.

WE SUBMIT

[00:15:01]

OUR DRAFT HOUSING ELEMENT TO HCD FOR REVIEW AND APPROVAL.

AND I WANT TO SAY THEY HAVE A VERY KEY PART IN THIS PROCESS.

THEY HAVE A LOT OF CONTROL OF WHAT'S IN THE DOCUMENT AND HOW WE PROCESS IT.

AND WE NEED TO REVISE THAT ACCORDING TO THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS AS BEST WE CAN.

AND THEN WE WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH SUBMITTING THAT TO HCD AND ULTIMATELY THE ADOPTION WHO PROVIDES OVERSIGHT TO HCD.

THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

OBVIOUSLY, THE GOVERNOR WOULD ALLOCATE WHO'S IN CHARGE OF IT, BUT MANY OF THESE LAWS ARE SET BY OUR LEGISLATORS.

OKAY, THANK YOU.

GOING BACK ONE WHERE YOU SAY DETERMINING THE REGIONAL HOUSING NEEDS ASSESSMENT, THAT'S NOT REALLY DONE BY US, CORRECT? THAT'S DONE AT THE STATE LEVEL.

ABSOLUTELY.

WE HAVE NO HAND IN IT, EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE BEEN VERY INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS.

SO WHAT'S THE SCHEDULE.

WE HAVE AN EXTREMELY TIGHT SCHEDULE.

WE NEED TO HAVE ALL OF THIS DONE BY OCTOBER 15TH, 2021.

AND THAT DATE IS ESTABLISHED BY HCD IN ORDER TO DO SO.

THE FIRST PART AND THE MOST DIFFICULT PART FOR US IS TO IDENTIFY ADEQUATE SITES FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

AND I'M GOING TO, I'M GOING TO DESCRIBE THAT A LITTLE BIT LATER IN THIS PRESENTATION SO WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT IS, WHAT THAT MEANS AND WHY IT'S SO DIFFICULT FOR US TO IDENTIFY ADEQUATE SITES.

AND THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE THIS MONTH IN ORDER FOR US, OR EXCUSE ME, NEXT MONTH, IN ORDER FOR US TO MEET THAT SCHEDULE, WHERE WE THEN COMING FORWARD WITH A DRAFT HOUSING ELEMENT, WE'LL BE PRESENTING THAT TO PLANNING COMMISSION CITY COUNCIL IN JUNE, THEN SUBMITTING TO HCD FOR THEIR REVIEW.

AND AGAIN, WITH THE GOAL OF GETTING TO ATD, A HOUSING ELEMENT THAT WE CAN ACCEPT, AND THEY HAVE APPROVED BY OCTOBER 15TH, 2021, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY SEVEN MONTHS FROM NOW.

SO THIS IS THE RENA NUMBERS.

SO THE FIRST ROLE IN WHERE IT STARTS IS AT THE STATE LEVEL, THE STATE HAS A MANDATE, OKAY, SO MANY UNITS THAT NEED TO BE DEVELOPED WITHIN THIS PLANNING CYCLE.

SO IT'S AN EIGHT YEAR PLANNING CYCLE.

SO FOR OUR REGION AND OUR REGION IS A SCAG REGION, WHICH IS SIX COUNTIES IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.

THE STATE HAS MANDATED THAT WE NEED OVER 1.3 MILLION NEW HOUSING UNITS OF THOSE HOUSING UNITS, ABOUT 41.6% MUST BE LOWER INCOME.

AND THOSE LOWER INCOME ARE DEFINED AS THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING.

AND FOR US AS I'LL DESCRIBE A LITTLE LATER, THAT IS OUR HIGH DENSITY HOUSING CITIES WITH A HIGHER PROPORTION OF ABOVE MODERATE INCOME, SUCH AS CHINO HILLS WILL HAVE A HIGHER PROPORTION OF THE LOWER INCOME AGAIN, TO CREATE WHAT THE STATE HAS IDENTIFIED AS EQUITY AND HOUSING TOO, TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY JURISDICTION HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE HOUSING FOR HOUSEHOLDS OF ALL INCOME LEVELS, SCARED THEN TAKES THE LEAD AND DEFINES A METHODOLOGY FOR HOW TO ALLOCATE THESE ONE OVER 1.3 MILLION ACROSS THE SIX COUNTIES.

JOANNE, ONE THING REAL QUICK BACK TO THE SLIDE BEFORE THAT THE VERY BOTTOM COMMENT WAS ALONG A PARALLEL TRACK GENERAL PLAN, UPDATE PROCESS TO INCORPORATE THE LAND USE CHANGES REQUIRED BY THE HOUSING ELEMENT.

OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO COME UP WITH THESE SITES THAT WE'RE GOING TO IDENTIFY BETWEEN NOW AND OCTOBER 15TH.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GO AHEAD AND REZONE.

IN MANY INSTANCES, THOSE SITES THAT HAVE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THAT POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT COULD A DEVELOPER COME IN OR AN OWNER OF THAT PROPERTY ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.

AND WITH THOSE NEW, UH, GENERAL PLAN UPDATES, GO AHEAD AND APPLY FOR THAT.

I'M ASSUMING INCREASED DENSITY.

OKAY.

CAUSE THAT'S A VERY CRITICAL THING.

I MEAN, IT'S, I'M SURE IT'S GOING TO GET DISCUSSED BY PEOPLE BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF FEAR OUT THERE ABOUT US DUMPING HIGH DENSITY, UH, PROPERTIES OR PARCELS IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD.

BUT THE REALITY IS THE WAY THIS IS GEARED.

ONCE THIS THING GETS GOING, IT'S GOING TO BE LIKE A RUNAWAY FREIGHT TRAIN.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO REALLY BE ABLE TO DO A WHOLE LOT ABOUT IT.

I DON'T BELIEVE, BUT HOPEFULLY OUR FURTHER EXPLANATION WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT.

YEP.

WE'LL DISCUSS AS THE PROCESS, BUT IN TERMS OF THE NUMBER OF UNITS, YOU'RE CORRECT.

WE HAVE TO COME UP WITH THAT NUMBER OF UNITS OR FACE CERTAIN CONSEQUENCES AGAIN, WHICH WE'LL GO OVER IN THIS PRESENTATION SHORTLY.

I JUST WANT TO BE SURE ABOUT THE TIMING OF THE GENERAL PLAN UPDATE CONSISTENT WITH THE OCTOBER 15TH DEADLINE.

SO IT HAS TO BE IN PLACE.

THE GENERAL PLAN PROCESS WILL BE PARALLEL.

WE CANNOT DO IT THAT QUICKLY.

SO THE GENERAL PLAN MOST LIKELY WILL OCCUR.

WE'RE HOPING FOR NEXT SPRING.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU.

SORRY.

CAN WE ON, ON THIS SLIDE, UH,

[00:20:01]

WHAT QUANTITY, WHICH QUANTIFIES VERY LOW AND LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLDS.

IT'S BASED ON A PERCENTAGE OF HOUSEHOLDS TO THE MEDIAN INCOME.

UM, AND I HAVE A SLIDE LATER ON THAT TALKS ABOUT SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY.

THAT'S PROBABLY A GOOD EXAMPLE.

SO ESSENTIALLY IT'S 80% OF 50% OF THE MEDIAN INCOME FOR THAT COUNTY.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SO NOW GIGS TAKES OVER AND, UM, WE HAVE BEEN WORKING THROUGH THIS PROCESS SINCE 2019.

OUR CITY HAS BEEN KEENLY INVOLVED AND QUITE HONESTLY, UM, I HAD NO IDEA THAT IT WOULD END
