Document Description
The project proposal is to adopt a comprehensive amendment/update to the Housing Element of the City of Folsom General Plan for the Planning Period of 2001 through 2007. This update to the Housing Element contains revised and expanded housing policies and programs, as well as new quantified short-range housing objectives. The housing construction targets assigned to the City as its regional "fair share" totals 4,269 units (1,672 Very Low units; 1,185 Low units, and 1,412 Moderate units). After accounting for units already constructed, a remainder of 3,801 units still need to be provided for during the balance of the planning period (through June 30, 2007). The Housing Element Update provides details regarding the location of vacant sites that could accommodate all of the identified units. Implementation programs, in particular Program 18f, indicate the need to rezone vacant sites to higher densities to accommodate the City's fair share of the regional housing need. The Housing Element further identifies constraints to housing production and recommends actions for removing or reducing the identified constraint.
