Disagreement remains over the causes of California’s housing shortage. Recent legislation, such as SB 35, the housing accountability act, and other streamlining legislation attempts represent efforts to address the problem. CEQA and the CEQA Guidelines (including the new Guidelines) also provide tools for regulatory streamlining. However, cities continue to struggle to approve new housing developments and developers blame CEQA and regulatory delays for the limited housing production. This panel will explore the on-going challenges to the construction of new housing and whether those challenges are real or perceived, including reviewing data on processing times and regulatory hurdles to approving new development. Panelists will discuss options for addressing the challenges in order to speed the process for approvals of new housing.
