Document Description
The City adopted the 2021–2029 Housing Element (Housing Element) on February 9, 2022. On April 8, 2022, the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) approved the City’s Housing Element and found it to be in full compliance with State Housing Element Law. The Project requires a General Plan Amendment and Amendments to the Zoning Code and Zoning Ordinance Map to implement the Project. The General Plan Amendment would revise the: 1) Land Use Element to update the text and maps consistent with the proposed zoning, and 2) Safety Element pursuant to SB 1241 to incorporate fire hazard planning, including review by Cal Fire. Amendments to the Zoning Code include modification to the text and maps to rezone 27 opportunity sites, including applicable planned development zones, and adoption of housing overlay zones (Affordable Housing Overlay, a Mixed-Use Housing Overlay, and a Congregational Land Overlay). Through rezoning, the City would provide a total of 2,410 housing units.
