Document Description
The project involves a comprehensive update of the City of Clayton General Plan Housing Element for the 6th housing cycle (2023-2031). The updated Housing Element will establish programs, policies and actions to further the goal of meeting existing and projected housing needs of all income levels and will identify how the City plans to accommodate its Regional Housing Needs Allocation of at least 570 units through the year 2031. The proposed Housing Element Update has the potential to result in development of up to 868 additional dwelling units and up to 13,000 square feet of additional non-residential building square footage within the Clayton Planning Area, which encompasses all properties within the City’s corporate boundaries, Sphere of Influence (SOI), and some open space areas outside the City’s corporate boundaries and SOI. The project includes focused updates to the General Plan Land Use Element and parallel amendments to the City's Zoning Code to implement the General Plan amendments. This project is City-wide.
