Document Description
The 2013 SEIR for the 2007-2014 Housing Element Update was certified on September 24, 2013. The approved project is an update to the County's Housing Element for the period 2015-2023. The purpose of the Housing Element is to achieve an adequate supply of decent, safe, and affordable housing for Marin's residents at all income levels, particularly the workforce, seniors and other special needs populations. The Housing Element assesses housing needs for all income groups and lays out a program to meet these needs. Housing affordability in Marin County and in the Bay Area as a whole has become increasingly important as climate change issues are addressed. A strategic infill approach that supports affordable housing for members of the workforce at selected missed-use locations near existing jobs and transit, along with an emphasis on green building and business practices offers Marin communities a way to carry out the four E's of sustainability (Environment, Economy, Equity and Education) while also preserving agricultural land, open space, sensitive resource areas and existing single family neighborhoods. As noted above this strategy follows the Countywide Plan goal of focusing what little growth unincorporated Marin is expected to experience within the City-Centered Corridor. This approach has been in effect and adhered to for the past 40 years. The overall goal of the Housing Element is to present goals, objectives, policies, and action programs to facilitate housing for existing and future needs in a balanced way that retains these attributes. Minor modifications to the prior 2007-2014 Housing Element involving deleting 9 sites from the housing inventory, deleting 12 Housing Element programs that were implemented, adding 6 new Housing Element programs that involve performing planning studies, and making clarifying revisions to 5 Housing Element programs.
