SANDAG Denies Coronado’s Appeal to Limit 1,001 New Housing Units

In January 2020, the San Diego Association of Governments distributed its allocation of planned housing units under the regional housing needs assessment (RHNA) to Coronado and other San Diego County cities. Coronado was assigned a stunning 1,001 new housing units, up 2,000 percent from the previous cycles.

Coronado notified SANDAG of its intention to appeal, a process that provided Coronado 10 minutes to make its case. The City prepared an eight-minute video to explain its position. SANDAG voted 14 to 5 to grant the appeal. However, due to provisions of state law, the city of San Diego called for a vote based on the populations of all jurisdictions.

The five jurisdictions that voted against Coronado won by 55% in the weighted vote, which overturned the previous vote and denied the appeals.

Here is Coronado’s appeal video:
