By law, every city and county in California must adopt a Housing Element as part of its General Plan. The purpose of the Housing Element is to ensure that local governments adequately plan to meet the housing needs of all people within the community-regardless of their income. The underlying premise of Housing Element law is that, for the private market to adequately address housing needs and demand, local governments must adopt land use plans and regulatory systems which provide opportunities for, and do not unduly constrain, housing development. All jurisdictions are required to update their Housing Element approximately every five years. The Tulare County Housing Element is not a development project and does not alter the environmental process of any proposed development.
