Document Description
The proposed Project involves the following: updates to the Housing Element for the 2021-2029 planning period; updates to the Safety and Mobility Elements; and incorporation of environmental justice goals, policies, and objectives of Burbank’s 2035 General Plan. The proposed Housing Element Update establishes programs, policies and actions to further the goal of meeting the existing and projected housing needs of all family income levels, and provides evidence of the City’s ability to meet the Southern California Association of Government's 2029 Regional Housing Needs Assessment. The purpose of the Safety Element Update is to ensure consistency with the Housing Element Update and to comply with recent State legislation and guidelines. Technical amendments will be made to the Safety Element to incorporate data and maps, address vulnerability to climate change; incorporate policies and programs from the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan and the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Plan, as well as partial or full integration of other City documents and programs. Updates to the Mobility Element will incorporate VMT (vehicle miles traveled) metrics, and the environmental justice updates will include goals, policies, and objectives aimed at reducing health risks to disadvantaged communities, promote civil engagement, and prioritize the needs of these communities.
