Housing Element Update 2015-2023

The City is updating its 2008 Housing Element, which is a State-mandated planning document for housing. It is one of the 7 State-required elements (chapters) of the General Plan, and the only one that requires certification by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). In general, housing elements include a housing needs assessment, constraints to housing development, resources and land inventory, and a summary of progress toward implementing the previous housing element.

For more information on housing elements, visit the link below from the HCD website, which describes requirements as well as best practices:
