Document Description
Review Per Lead: Shorten Review Date The Draft Housing Element is prepared in compliance with the State mandated periodic update in accordance with Section 65580 et. sec. of the Government Code. The purpose of the housing element is to identify the County's housing needs; to state the County's goals and objectives with regard to housing production, rehabilitation and conservation to meet those needs; and to define the policies and programs that the County will implement to achieve the stated goals and objectives. The Draft Housing Element is a policy document intended as a guide to decision makers in meeting the County's housing objectives over the next five years, including the provision of housing for very low, low and moderate income groups. However, the compliance with the programs and policies of the Housing Element does not entitle or approve any development projects.
