Document Description
The project proposes an amendment to the City of Indio General Plan 2040 adopted on September 18, 2019 to update Housing Element. As required under State Law every eight years, the City of Indio is preparing an update to the City’s Housing Element. The City’s existing Housing Element was adopted in 2013 and is set to expire in October 2021. The State Department of Housing and Community Development has provided a Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) to the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) and the City has been assigned a RHNA of 7,812 housing units in the City between 2021 and 2029 of which 2,963 or 38% of the housing units must be affordable. The updated Housing Element will provide the capacity to accommodate the RHNA for the planning period with the necessary goals and policies to ensure adequate development of housing for the City during the housing cycle. This Element is a policy document, and its adoption would not result in any direct or indirect physical impacts because no development or construction is authorized by this action.
