Housing Evaluation Rubric

Updated: Jan 29

How do we evaluate upcoming housing projects?

Housing Evaluation Decision-Making Rubric


Purpose

The following housing evaluation rubric will be used by the Board of Directors of Housing and Homelessness Collaborative of Claremont (Housing Claremont) to consider our positions on new housing developments in Claremont, and how we will enact those positions publicly.


Context

All housing developments are not created equal, thus Housing Claremont must consider each development independently in order to establish how well-aligned it is with our core values. The degree of alignment will determine how strongly we support the development, and what mechanisms we employ to reflect that support publicly.
