The Site Suitability Analysis: helps the Town identify housing opportunity locations to meet the 6th cycle RHNA requirements. These sites are expected to yield the target number of housing units based on four different income levels by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).

To facilitate the discussion, a GIS map viewer tool has been developed to identify the potential housing opportunity sites. Each site has also been rated for suitability.
