Santa Ana General Plan Housing Element Update
Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
State law requires cities to update their General Plan Housing Element for the 6th Cycle planning period (2021-2029) pursuant to Government Code Sections 65580 through 65589.11. The City of Santa Ana has prepared a draft Housing Element which includes an analyses required by state law related to: 1) establishment of goals and policies to address housing needs; 2) existing demographics and housing characteristics; 3) market, government, and environmental constraints; 4) resources available to meet housing demand; 5) a review of past accomplishments under the 2013-2021 Housing Element; and 6) an assessment of fair housing issues and contributing factors. In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), an addendum to the previously adopted Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) for the General Plan Update (SCH No. 2020029087) has been prepared for the 6th Cycle Housing Element (GPA No. 2021-01). Under CEQA Guidelines Section 15164, an addendum to a previously certified EIR or negative declaration shall be prepared when a lead agency is asked to approve modifications to an existing project for which an EIR has already been certified or negative declaration has already been adopted. In accordance with the State CEQA Guidelines, since none of the conditions specified in Section 15162 are present, an addendum to the previously certified PEIR is the appropriate form of environmental review.
