Housing Element Update (6th Cycle 2021-2029)
The City of Stanton is in the process of updating the Housing Element of the General Plan for the planning period between 2021 through 2029.

Regional Housing Needs Allocation (6th Cycle 2021-2029)
The Housing Element Update is how the City addresses its assigned fair share of regional housing. This fair share is determined through a Regional Needs Allocation (RHNA) process. The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), with input from the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), determines the total housing need for the 2021-2029 period. SCAG then determines the housing allocation for each Southern California city and county. This update must identify enough land zoned for residential use to accommodate the City's 1,228 unit allocation.
Stanton's draft allocation of 1,228 units, which is broken down by income groups, as shown in the table as follows:
SCAG will adopt the final allocation in October 2020. To read more about the RHNA allocation methodology and process, visit SCAG's RHNA and Housing webpage.
