Challenge

The Long Beach Planning Bureau is seeking a accurate, compelling, and accessible solution to track and regularly communicate housing production and trends for our internal City stakeholders and the public.

Background

With new State requirements, Development Services is expected to track and report the entitlement, permitting, and construction of housing units, categorized to certain types, which is extremely onerous and imprecise with our current system and practices. Additionally, as public interest has also increased, Development Services is interested in exploring ways to make housing production data accessible in real time through an interactive dashboard, for use by Council and residents.

Requirements & Outcome

  • Displays housing production data and trends for the City 
  • Display information in charts, graphs and infographics consistent with the City’s style guide
  • Interactive, dynamic, and easy to update. 
  • Integrates with other City systems to update in real time
  • Creates scheduled and ad-hoc reports 
  • Customizable by City staff to address future needs
