Document Description
The project consists of the 6th Cycle Housing Element Update, an eight-year plan which explains the City's housing goals, policies, and programs. It updates the current Housing Element which was adopted in 2015. The Housing Element is part of the General Plan, which guides public and private decisions regarding housing, development review, land use, City budgets and capital improvement programs. The Draft includes policies and programs intended to increase housing opportunities for extremely low, very-low, low- and moderate-income households, while accommodating growth in a manner consistent with goals and policies contained in the Land Use Element and other elements of the General Plan. The content of housing elements is prescribed under State housing law and addresses changes in State law and in regional housing needs.
