Document Description
The Project includes an update to the 2007-2014 Housing Element for the planning period 2015-2023 in compliance with Government Code Section 65580 et seq. The identified sites (2,774 units), including the committed sites (6,146), would allow the City to meet its RHNA with a total capacity of 8,920 units, resulting in a surplus above the required RHNA (3,290 units). No rezoning or changes to General Plan designations would be required to achieve this yield. The Seismic and Safety Element Amendment includes an update to required information related to Federal Emergency Management Agency Flood Insurance Rate Maps, dam inundation and City goals and policies to comply with State law (AB162, Government Code 65302). The Open Space and Environmental Conservation Element Amendment includes a revised map of rivers, creeks, and riparian habitat.
