Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element

Fresno County and 12 of the 15 cities in Fresno County are launching a Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element for the fifth round of housing element updates. Fresno COG is helping to coordinate the effort and this Housing Element webpage will be the information center for the Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element.

 

Regional Housing Allocation Plan

The Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) Plan is a state required document that determines the number of housing unit’s cities and counties must plan for in their housing element section of the general plan.  First the Department of Housing and Community Development or HCD allocates RHNA units to us here at Fresno COG for the whole county.  We are then tasked with developing a methodology in which we will allocate those units to our member agencies. Go to Fresno COG’s RHNA webpage.

Fresno COG Office Operations: Consistent with protocols being followed by state and local public agencies regarding the COVID-19 crisis, the majority of Fresno COG staff are telecommuting from home. For a Fresno COG staff email directory click here.

Regional Transportation Mitigation Fee (RTMF) Collection: Fresno COG will continue to collect RTMF mitigation fees on Mondays and Tuesdays from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm only, until the COVID-19 situation has been mitigated to a level deemed safe by public health officials.
