Description:
Abstract:
This feature set contains the physical locations of proposed development projects contained in residential building permits issued in the San Francisco Bay Region during the 2015 calendar year. The information was gathered by surveying the region's 101 cities and 9 counties in the summer of 2016. They were asked for the Annual Housing Element Progress Report they submitted to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) and permitting spreadsheets that contained location information. After the permit information was compiled, each jurisdiction was sent a copy of their list to verify the accuracy of the list and provide them with an opportunity to comment and make corrections. The attributes for the features in this dataset are available in a separate Excel spreadsheet available for download from the same location as this feature set (http://gis.abag.ca.gov). Field and value descriptions for the attributes spreadsheet are included in the spreadsheet metatdata.

Purpose:
Residential building permits reported to the State of California by jurisdictions in the San Francisco Bay Region for the 2015 calendar year. The permits were collected to assist the Association of Bay Area Governments' (ABAG) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission's (MTC) planning efforts.

Process_Description:
Prior to initial release, planning staff noticed a number of duplicate permits and missing jurisidictions. This feature set was then edited to remove duplicated permits and permits for missing jurisdictions were geolocated and added to the feature set.

In addition, the attribute table for the feature set was removed and is now distributed as a separate Excel spreadsheet. An identification field (joinid) was added to the feature set and attribute spreadsheet so the attributes can be joined to the features.
