2019-2027 Housing Element Update - Get Involved!

The City is embarking on updating the Housing Element.  The proposed Housing Element represents a revision of the current Housing Element of the General Plan, adopted in 2011. This Housing Element revision is being prepared to meet State legislative provision as described in Section 65588 of the Government Code and to address issues required by a substantial number of new and amended Government Code provisions passed since the adoption of the former Housing Element. The revision of the Housing Element is also required to achieve consistency with the City's General Plan. Lastly, the Element is being revised to address a variety of local housing issues currently facing the City. For example, measures in the General Plan seek to encourage homeownership, infrastructure upgrades to support housing, and greater private investment in the community by supporting revitalization of the Town Center area.  Additional information, including background infromation, the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) numbers and our Community Survey can be found by CLICKING HERE.
