In the News | State rejects Oakland’s Housing Element… for now

As Piedmont awaits state approval for its own Housing Element, news came Tuesday afternoon that the state rejected Oakland’s plan in early February, saying the city needed to make further revisions before it would be approved. Oakland is required to plan for 26,000 new units; Piedmont’s allocation is 587.

Oaklandside and the San Francisco Chronicle reported the news Tuesday afternoon.

Piedmont submitted its required Housing Element to the state in November and it remains under review, according to the state’s Housing Element Review and Compliance Report dashboard. The state has rejected the majority of cities throughout the Bay Area, including Berkeley’s housing element. San Francisco and Alameda are in compliance.
