When will the housing will be built?

The City must ensure that the appropriate zoning is in place to accommodate RHNA but does not control when or how much housing is actually built.  New housing construction is based on a variety of socio-economic factors such as demand, available financing, land and construction costs, etc. and is ultimately driven by private property owners.
