Document Description
The Proposed Project involves updates to the Town of Fairfax General Plan Housing Element. In compliance with State law, the Housing Element is being updated to account for changing demographics, market conditions, and projected housing need over an 8-year planning period that runs from 2023 through 2031. It builds upon the goals, policies, and implementing programs contained in the Town’s 2015-2023 Housing Element and other Town policies and practices to address housing needs in the community. The overall focus of the Housing Element is to address local housing need in compliance with State law while also seeking to retain Fairfax's village-like quality, with distinct neighborhoods, and large areas of surrounding visible open space. The Town of Fairfax circulated a Notice of Preparation (NOP) for the Project on August 26, 2022. Since that time, the inventory of sites available for housing and the projections for their realistic capacity to accommodate housing have been revised. Therefore, the Town is recirculating the Notice of Preparation and will be hosting a new Scoping Meeting.
