Ontario to build 20,000-plus housing units

Ontario has agreed to build more than 20,000 housing units between now and October 2029, including 9,000 units for low-income residents.

The updated housing element, adopted earlier this month, represents what the city is required to build under the state-mandated Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA), according to a statement on the city’s website.

That program is governed by the state Department of Housing and Community Development, and is updated every eight years to keep pace with California’s housing needs.

Ontario has the largest RHNA allocation of any Inland Empire city. That program is operated by the the state Department of Housing and Community Development and is updated every eight years.

“Our updated housing element reflects the city council’s commitment to Ontario as a complete community and a destination for individuals and families looking for a better quality of life,” said Mayor Paul S. Leon in the statement.

California is in the midst of a severe housing crisis, having added 3.2 times more people than housing units during the past 10 years, according to the nonprofit Public Policy Institute of California, a nonpartisan think tank.
