The project is the adoption and implementation of the Hercules General Plan 2015-2023 Housing Element and amendments to the General Plan Safety and Open Space Elements as related to fire and flood hazards. The Housing Element is an integral component of the City's General Plan as it addresses existing and future housing needs of all types for persons in all economic segment groups within the City. The Housing Element serves as a tool for decision-makers and the public in understanding and meeting housing needs in Hercules. While the law does not require local governments to actually construct housing to meet identified needs it does require that the community address housing needs in its discretionary planning actions such as creating opportunities for housing in the land use plan and facilitating development through policy.
