Document Description
The project is a General Plan Amendment replacing the current Housing Element of the County’s General Plan, covering the period from 2014 to 2022, with a revised Housing Element covering the state-mandated Planning Period from 2022 to 2031. State law requires jurisdictions to periodically update the Housing Element of their General Plan; the update schedule, process and the contents of the Housing Element are also regulated by state law. The updated Housing Element covers the period from 2022 to 2031, and on adoption will replace the prior Housing Element, adopted by the Board of Supervisors in 2014. Consistent with state law, the revised Housing Element: (1) provides an updated assessment of the County’s existing and projected housing needs; (2) identifies opportunities and constraints relevant to meeting those needs; (3) evaluates the effectiveness of current housing programs; and (4) develops new policies, programs, and quantified objectives to meet identified housing needs in unincorporated areas.
