The project consists of an amendment to the City of Sonoma General Plan to update the housing element pursuant to California Government Code Section 65588. The Housing Element is solely a policy document and does not modify the zoning and land-use designations of any land within the city, nor does it modify the land use element of the General Plan or the City's Zoning Ordinance.
The Housing Element identifies and assesses projected housing needs and provides an inventory of constraints and resources relevant to meeting these needs, as required under state law. Components of the element include: a housing needs assessment with population and household characteristics; identification of constraints to projecting housing; and inventory of available sites for the provision of housing for all economic segments of the community; and a statement of goals, policies and programs for meeting the City's housing needs.
