Government Affairs

Government Affairs and builder advocacy continue to be the primary focus of the BIA Riverside County Chapter. We are engaged with jurisdictions throughout Riverside County on numerous issues. Several updates include:

  • Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC)-2024 Draft Traffic Relief Plan (TRP): RCTC has just released it 2024 Draft TRP. The plan is a local strategy to reduce traffic bottlenecks, improve roadway safety, and to help create a stronger, more sustainable economy for Riverside County communities. We would strongly encourage members to review this plan and provide input and comments as to how the plan can support your current and future housing projects in Riverside County. You can learn more at: 2024 Draft Traffic Relief Plan - Riverside County Transportation Commission (

  • County of Riverside DIF Update: The County of Riverside has begun their long-awaited Development Impact Fee (DIF) update and has shared an administrative draft with the Riverside County BIA for our early review and comment. We have begun the review of the document, which is extensive, covering more than 20 area plans throughout Riverside County.  We appreciate the County of Riverside for reaching out to the BIA early and we look forward to working with them on a DIF update that is reasonable and protects home affordability in Riverside County

  • Affordable Housing: Local cities are actively grappling with the continued state-required affordable housing mandates. Unfortunately, those state mandates come without any new funding sources, causing communities to look to the home building industry as the primary funding source via inclusionary housing policies and fees. While we understand the difficult challenge local governments face achieving affordable housing goals, taxing new home buyers to cover those costs will only make homes more expensive and put home ownership out of reach for even more people, making the problem worse. We are currently involved in discussions on new inclusionary housing fee proposals in several cities where our goal remains to make sure the policy has an in-lieu fee option and that the new fee is as low as possible.

  • Elections 2024: Fall is here and campaigns are in high-gear for the early March 2024 primary. In March we will see primary elections for the Board of Supervisors and some City Council’s in Riverside County. These primaries will roll into a very busy fall 2024 where nearly every elected body in Riverside County will hold elections. Candidates are beginning to emerge, and we continue to work hard identifying and supporting pro-business, pro-housing candidates. 

The BIA Riverside County Chapter will continue to be focused on industry advocacy and keeping Riverside County and our local cities a great place to build much needed housing. If you become aware of an emerging issue you want to make sure the chapter is monitoring, please feel free to email your thoughts to [email protected]
