Revisions to Affordable Housing Covenants (April 2018)

Over time the City of Rohnert Park has entered into a number of covenants with owners of multi-family housing projects within the City. Some of the covenants set forth occupancy limits for affordable units that differ from current California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”) guidelines on residential occupancy standards. The DFEH guidelines currently recommend occupancy standards of two persons per bedroom plus one additional person for the overall affordable rental unit.

The City is amending any covenant that differs from DFEH’s guidelines to read: “The maximum size of a household occupying an Affordable Unit shall be two (2) persons per bedroom plus one (1) additional person. This standard may be modified, as necessary to comply with any occupancy standards that may now or in the future be established by California Department of Fair Employment and Housing’s (“DFEH”) in their guidelines on residential occupancy.”

The City of Rohnert Park invites low-income families with minor children to rent below market rate (BMR) units in the City.
