Comprehensive General Plan Amendment (CGPA) No. 596 (Adoption of the Riverside County Housing Element Update) ;
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Document Description
The Housing Element is a comprehensive statement by the County of Riverside of its broad and specific commitments to facilitate the development of housing in the unincorporated areas of the County. The Housing Element is one of the seven General Plan elements mandated by the State of California, as articulated in Sections 65580 to 65589.8 of the Government Code. State law requires that the Housing Element consist of " identification and analysis of existing and projected housing needs and a statement of goals, policies, quantified objectives, and scheduled programs for the preservation, improvement and development of housing". The residential character of the County is, to a large extent, determined by the variety of its housing and the locations and maintenance of the housing. The Housing Element is an official response to the need to provide housing for all economic segments of the population. It establishes policies that will guide County decision making, and sets forth an action plan to implement housing goals through 2005.
