City of Mountain View Housing Element Update
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The City of Mountain View proposes to prepare and adopt a comprehensive update to the Housing Element (of the City’s General Plan) for the period from January 2023 to January 2031 as required by State law. As part of the Housing Element Update (HEU or the Project), the City will prepare and adopt limited amendments to other elements (or chapters) of the General Plan as needed, and may also adopt limited changes to existing precise plans and the City’s zoning map/regulations to maintain consistency with the updated Housing Element. The Project analyzed in the EIR would update the City’s Housing Element, including goals, objectives, policies, and implementation programs that address the maintenance, preservation, improvement, and development of housing in the City. In addition, the HEU would include an inventory of sites appropriate for the development of multifamily housing, and sufficient to accommodate the City’s RHNA plus a buffer. The City would rezone identified sites only if/as necessary to meet requirements of State law and would amend other elements of the General Plan if/as needed to maintain internal consistency.
