Document Description
Housing Element Update As a mandated Element of the General Plan, the Housing Element analyzes the existing housing stock and existing and future housing needs based on demographic data, and provides strategies to meet the housing needs of the City’s residents. The Housing Element focuses on affordable housing and housing for special needs populations, including seniors, disabled persons (including developmental disabilities), large families, single parent households, and the homeless. The Goals, Policies, and Programs identified in this Housing Element will assist the City’s decision makers in facilitating housing development and preservation to address the needs. The City is complying with the mandatory update schedule for Housing Elements. This Update addresses the 2022- 2029 planning period. Safety Element The Safety Element is updated along with the Housing Element as required by state law. The Safety Element Update includes a Flood Hazard Zones Map (Exhibit SF-4) which reflects the current FEMA flood zones, and a Fire Hazard Severity Zones Map (Exhibit SF-5) which provides the current fire hazard mapping by CalFire. The Safety Element also addresses climate change impacts and adaptation, including its interaction with fire, flood, and extreme heat hazards. The Update expanded discussion on emergency preparedness at local and regional levels with reference to the City’s Local Hazard Mitigation Plan to be adopted in 2021 and the San Bernardino County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan approved by FEMA and adopted in 2017.
