  • Oakcrest Terrace (54 very low, 14 low income units)

  • Oakcrest Heights (45 very low, 8 low income units)

In addition to evaluating the City’s accomplishments in implementing its housing element programs, the Housing Element Update must evaluate the City’s progress in addressing its fair share of the regional housing need, or RHNA. 

During the first 6 years of the 8 year planning period, Yorba Linda issued building permits for a total of 932 units, well exceeding its total RHNA need for 669 units.  In terms of lower- and moderate-income housing, the City produced 166 units, addressing 42% of its affordable housing needs. Three projects constructed or under construction are highlighted below.
