Document Description
The project is the adoption and implementation of the Murrieta 2008-2014 Housing Element, which represents an update of the current General Plan Housing Element. The Housing Element is an integral component of the City's General Plan, as it addresses existing and future housing needs for person of all economic segments in the City. The City of Murrieta's long-term goal is to provide housing opportunities to meet the diverse needs of the community. The Initial Study assesses the potential impacts related to the provisions of adequate land to accommodate the City's remaining Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) of 1,413 housing units. The City has already achieved a portion of its RHNA with housing units accommodated on vacant residentially zoned land, including units constructed, under construction, and approved since January 2006. To accommodate the remaining RHNA units, the City has identified six Housing Opportunity sites to be rezoned to a new Multi Family-3 (MF-3) designation, and will amend a portion of the Historic Specific Plan area of the Village Mixed Use (VMU) district to allow residential. The MF-3 designation and the VMU area will allow up to 30 dwelling units per acre and can accommodate the City's remaining RHNA.
