Document Description
State law requires that every City prepare and adopt a Housing Element to be included as part of the City's General Plan. Additionally, the Government Code requires that every City periodically amend their Housing Element. The project consists of adoption of the Housing Element Update 2013-2020 in compliance with the State of CA Government Code Section 65580-65589.8. The project also includes related amendments to the text of the Community Development (Land Use) Element of the General Plan to reflect the updated Housing Element. The Housing Element includes four major components: 1) An assessment of the community's housing needs; 2) An inventory of resources and constraints relevant to meeting the community's housing needs; 3) A statement of goals, policies and quantified objectives that will guide the implementation of specific programs; and 4) A housing program to be implemented over a specified period that describes the implementation actions to be taken by the City to meet the needs.
