The proposed plan involves updates to the General Plan Housing and Safety Element as well as incorporation of new General Plan Environmental Justice policies. The 2021-2029 Housing Element is being driven by the following regulatory requirements: (1) The Housing Element Update would update the City’s Housing Element as part of the 6th Cycle Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) and per compliance with California Government Code Sections 65580 to 65589.11. (2) The Safety Element Update would update the City’s Safety Element to integrate climate adaptation and resiliency strategies into the General Plan per Senate Bill (SB) 379, which amended California Government Code Section 65302. (3) Update of the Housing and Safety elements would include the addition of Environmental Justice-related goals, policies, and objectives per SB 1000, which amended Government Code Section 65302.
