Document Description
The project consists of an update of the City of Belvedere's Housing Element, which has been reviewed and approved by the State of California's Department of Housing and Community Development. The Housing Element Update includes provisions for providing the City of Belvedere's fair share of the regional housing need, which is a total of 10 units between January, 1999 and June, 2006, with the following income breakdown: 1 unit affordable to a very low income household (10 percent of the total); 1 unit affordable to a low income household (10 percent of the total); 2 units affordable to moderate income households (20 percent of the total); and 6 units affordable to above moderate income households (60 percent of the total). Belvedere is unique insofar as it is severely limited in developable land; it is essentially built out. Therefore, redevelopment is the most likely method of meeting the legal obligation to provide 10 units of afforadable housing. In reviewing potential options, it appears that second units may provide the most likely way to meet the housing need, which is the plan that has been described, and is currently being implemented, in the Draft Housing Element, and is the plan that has been approved by the Department of Housing and Community Development.
