Encinitas has been complicit in rounding down, rather than rounding up, when calculating the number of affordable units developers can add to a project. In spite of the recommendations by city officials to round up, the Encinitas City Council continues to interpret the density bonus law differently. Encinitas is also required to submit its Regional Housing Needs Assessment Plan on how it plans to accommodate 1,300 additional affordable units within the next several years; the city hasn’t updated its plan since 1992. Last year, Encinitas unveiled four options over where it will locate the future units. Encinitas risks losing state grant funding if it fails to submit its plan to the state.
