2015-2019 Bay Area Permit Activity Report

The 2015-2019 Bay Area Permit Activity Report shows the number of new housing units for which Bay Area jurisdictions issued permits in calendar years 2015 through 2019.

It was compiled by staff from the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) based on permit data provided to ABAG/MTC by local jurisdictions combined with APR data submitted to the Department of Housing and Community Development.

Although it compares local permit activity to each jurisdiction's total housing goals for the 2015-2023 Regional Housing Need Allocation (RHNA) as a point of reference, this data does not represent the official tracking of progress in meeting RHNA goals for the purposes of SB35 streamlining. That information is compiled by the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
