Update on Rockridge Housing Study (June 2019)

Thursday, July 4, 2019

The Rockridge Housing Study, begun last spring, seeks to provide information that the community can use to guide decisions about how Rockridge might best help address the City’s housing needs.  Five alternative scenarios have been developed.  As noted in last month’s report, Darin Smith, a Rockridge resident and a principal of Economic & Planning Systems, Inc., has volunteered some of his time and the use of modeling software his firm developed to help the Committee analyze each scenario’s effects on housing – both amount and affordability – and t

U.C. Students Design Affordable Housing at the Rockridge BART station

Thursday, June 6, 2019

This year, a U.C. Berkeley graduate course included student projects studying possible housing projects at two BART station sites:  Glen Park Station in San Francisco and the Rockridge BART Station.  The projects were all based on recent state legislation that allowed BART to “upzone” land it owned to promote transit-oriented housing, with an emphasis on affordable housing.

April 2019 Land Use Committee Update

Sunday, May 12, 2019

Following up on the previous week’s Town Hall featuring Senator Skinner’s Communications Director, Bob Gammon, explaining the bill, the committee discussed various aspects of the bill and how it might affect Oakland and Rockridge.  Committee members raised numerous concerns about the bill.  Perhaps the biggest concern is that the bill, like its predecessor SB 827, attempts a “one-size-fits-all” approach to addressing California’s shortage of affordable housing.  Indeed, Mr.

The April 18th Town Hall was primarily devoted to a high-interest program: explaining California Senate Bill 50 – a bill to promote housing near train and ferry stops, along major bus routes, and in major job centers – and how it might affect Rockridge.  The program, expertly moderated by Ms.

Update on Senators Wiener's and Skinner's new housing upzone bill

Thursday, March 22, 2018

The February Rockridge News featured an article on Senators Scott Wiener's (D-San Francisco) and Nancy Skinner's (D-Oakland-Berkeley) bill, which would mandate residential upzoning near transit stations and major transit line stops statewide.  Faced with significant opposition to their bill, they have added a series of amendments.  (The attached file shows the bill's amended language as of March 1, 2018.)

Friday, January 26, 2018

Following up on their success last year in passing SB 35 (see Land Use Committee Update article for January 2018), State Senators Scott Wiener (San Francisco) and Nancy Skinner (Oakland/Berkeley) have introduced a new bill, SB 827, intended to address California's housing crisis.  The bill would create a "transit-rich housing bonus" that would apply to areas near transit stations or "high quality transit corridors" (bus service at least every 15 minutes during peak travel hours).  In those areas, local zoning height limits would be replaced by height limits

Town Hall Meeting Lays out Options for Rockridge's Housing

Friday, April 21, 2017

A capacity crowd of more than fifty filled the Rockridge Library's meeting room to hear about and discuss the future of Rockridge's housing, as the RCPC Land Use Committee presented an interim report on preparing a Rockridge Housing Policy for the RCPC Board of Directors.   The Town Hall presentation was part of RCPC's annual membership meeting, where RCPC's members (everyone over the age of 18 living within RCPC's boundaries) also voted on the election of five members to the Board of Directors.

RCPC to Consider Housing Policy Recommendations for Rockridge

Saturday, January 21, 2017

Unless you're Rip Van Winkel, if you live in Rockridge you are probably aware that Oakland is facing a serious housing crisis.  The supply of housing has not kept up with the fast-increasing demand.  As a result, home prices and rents have been rapidly escalating, and it's becoming harder and harder for anyone except the very well-to-do to find Oakland housing they can affort.
