Document Description
The project is the updated Housing Element of the Milpitas General Plan. The new element would replace the 1994 Housing Element, establishing updated policies and programs relating to housing construction, preservation, and affordability. State law requires completion of the update. The components of the Housing Element are a Needs Assessment, an Analysis of Constraints, and Resources and a Housing Plan. The analysis indicates that the City has sufficient land to accommodate its fair share assingment, but must take a number of actions to facilitate construction. The major of the City's Housing sites is located in the Midtown Specific Plan Area. The capacity for over 5,000 new housing units has been identified in the Midtown Specific Plan Environmental Impact Report. The General Plan amendments and Zoning Changes will not be necessary to accommodate the fair share allocation.
