Housing continues to be a significant focus for planners in California and jurisdictions are taking different tacks to respond to local and state policies and mandates. Adopted in 2019, the City of San Diego’s Complete Communities Housing Solutions (CCHS) regulations are aimed at increasing affordable and market-rate housing in the City’s transit priority areas—precisely the areas that California’s SB 375 and SANDAG’s Sustainable Communities Strategy have long targeted.
The CCHS’s combination of best practices for promoting housing production is innovative and has shown good progress to date. Among other incentives, the ordinance is completely “opt-in” and offers unlimited density within expanded FAR limits. While controversial for some, the CCHS stands out as a model worth learning about and potentially considered by other jurisdictions.
