“Take the Moraga Housing Challenge” and allocate 800 multi-family housing units across 11 geographic subareas on an interactive map. It’s fun, it’s easy, and it takes just a few minutes.
Balancing Act is an online mapping tool which allows residents to provide input on the most appropriate locations to potentially develop additional housing units in the Moraga community. Based on projections, and projects currently in the development pipeline, Moraga has a shortfall of 800 units in meeting its housing requirement of 1,118 units. The Balancing Act Tool enables residents to “click” on each of the subareas and use “plus” and “minus” tools to add virtual housing units to each area. The number of units that can be assigned to each subarea is capped to avoid putting all the units in one zone. Once a player reaches 800 units, they receive the “You Have a Housing Plan!” message.
