City of Glendale 6th Cycle Housing Element 2021-2029
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Housing Element is one of eight state-mandated elements of the Glendale's General Plan. The Housing Element identifies the City's housing needs and conditions, and establishes goals, objectives and policies that form the basis of the City's vision and strategy for its housing in the City. The Element is updated in eight-year cycles with the current update referred to as Cycle 6 that was adopted by City Council on February 1, 2022. The Housing Plan recommends only minor modifications to the City's current Housing Element Goals and Policies. No General Plan land use changes or zoning changes were necessary to accommodate Glendale's Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA); future residential development is expected to occur in those areas already identified for residential uses. No areas have been identified for rezoning or upzoning. The Housing Plan includes a number of new programs to address State housing law including future required updates to the Glendale Municipal Code, new programs to support affirmatively furthering fair housing, and tracking and reporting requirements for Glendale's Housing Sites.
