"6.1 Net Impact on Housing Availability Regionally

The proposed Project is estimated to result in net decrease in available housing units of 815 units regionally, as shown in Table 6-1. This estimate reflects the combined effect of:

-Addition of up to 1,730 new residential units to the housing supply; and
-2,545 units of added housing demand from new on-site and off-site workers.

The 815-unit net decrease in regional housing availability represents an increase in housing demand that exceeds the number of new residential units added to the housing supply.

... the 815-unit net decrease in available housing throughout the region consists of 127 Extremely Low, 270 Very Low, 727 Low ... units. The decrease in housing availability in the Extremely Low, Very Low, Low ... is partially offset by increases in available housing in the Moderate and Above Moderate categories ..."
