The intent for this project is to create housing-ready sites to facilitate the development of high-density housing.
Housing-Ready Sites can be defined as sites that simply require a ministerial planning approval or a discretionary
entitlement with no further CEQA review prior to development. Prime sites for inclusion are County-owned sites or Riverside County Housing Authority identified sites, or prime sites for housing as determined by County Planning, etc. In particular, the Housing-Ready Sites Project has been vetted to some degree and considered for residential development, including deed and income restricted affordable housing. Addressing the entitlement parameters for all sites,
particularly with respect to zoning and permitting, to the extent possible, could make these sites “shelf ready”
for private development or public/private partnerships.
