Document Description
The Project is the Sixth Cycle, 2021-2029 Housing Element Update of the City of Rolling Hills General Plan and an update to the City’s Safety Element to address various natural and human-caused hazards, including earthquakes, wildfires, droughts, and land movement. The Housing Element Update (HEU) and Safety Element Update (SEU) are policy updates only, and no specific development is proposed at this time. The City’s Housing Element serves as an integrated part of the General Plan and is subject to detailed statutory requirements, including a requirement to be updated every eight years and mandatory review by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). The proposed HEU is an eight-year plan for the 2021-2029 period. The Fifth Cycle Housing Element was adopted June 14, 2021, and found to be in compliance by HCD on July 7, 2021. As a result of the compliance determination, the City does not have to carry over its prior Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) and may plan only for the 45 units identified in the Sixth Cycle RHNA. This action includes the adoption of the HEU, which is a policy document; no actual development or rezoning of parcels is included as part of the HEU. The City’s Safety Element addresses hazards of concern relevant to the City and provides goals, policies, and implementation measures to minimize these hazards. Similar to the HEU, the SEU is a policy document; no actual development or rezoning of parcels is included as part of the approval. In addition to goals and policies, the SEU includes implementation measures for action items for the City. The goals, policies, and implementation for hazard mitigation, community communication, and climate change adaptation and resilience are included in the SEU.
