Fremont Housing Element Update

City Center Apartments

Fremont’s General Plan includes a Housing Element that identifies local housing needs and helps inform future housing decisions. Under State law, cities are required to update their Housing Element every eight years to show how they plan to meet the housing needs of current and future residents at all income levels. 

The City is beginning work on a Housing Element update, with a goal of completion in 2022. As a part of this update, known as the Regional Housing Need Allocation process (RHNA), the State identifies the estimated total housing need for the Bay Area from 2023-2031. The Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) then determines how to fairly distribute this need to local governments. ABAG recently approved draft allocations for the upcoming RHNA cycle, which includes 12,897 Fremont housing units. The updated Housing Element will convey how the City plans to accommodate its portion of the region’s housing need, while balancing community values and priorities. 

For more information on the update process and how to stay informed, please visit the City's Housing Element webpage.
