City of Belmont Housing Element Update
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Document Description
The Housing Element update presents a comprehensive set of housing policies and actions for the years 2023-2030 and will encompass the entire city of Belmont. The Housing Element update will be based on the City's RHNA estimated, which determined that the city needs plan for approximately 1,700 residential units, plus a number of buffer units to ensure ongoing compliance with the Not Net Loss provisions of State housing law. The City expects to exceed growth forecasts in its 2017 General Plan and Belmont Village Specific Plan by 2022. The City has determined that a Program EIR will be the best document to comply with CEQA. Belmont may be required to find additional sites to accommodate as many as 3,400 new units. Upzoning efforts will be targeted along the entire El Camino Real corridor, and a new corridor planning effort focused on Old County Road.
