Document Description
The project is to update the Housing Element of the Town of Portola Valley General Plan as required by Government Code Sections 65580 et seq. The Housing Element is a comprehensive statement by the Town describing the housing needs of Portola Valley and how the Town's plans, policies, programs and regulations facilitate and encourage the development, improvement and preservation of housing for all economic segments of the community. The draft 2014 Housing Element update contains eight programs: 1) Inclusionary Housing; 2) Affiliated Housing; 3) Second Units; 4) Shared Housing; 5) Fair Housing; 6) Energy Conservation and Sustainability; 7) Explore Future Housing Needs and Potential Housing Programs; 8) Transitional and Supportive Housing Ordinance Amendment. These programs set forth the Town's strategy for enhancing and preserving the housing stock, for expanding housing opportunities for various economic segments, and for meeting state requirements. The Housing Element also provides policy guidance for decision-making related to housing.
