Document Description
The City of Sausalito recently adopted a 6th Cycle Housing Element Update as an amendment to the Sausalito General Plan. The Housing Element update is mandated by state law. The Housing Element establishes goals, policies, and identifies future actions to address the existing and projected housing needs of Sausalito. The goals, policies, and actions are required by state law to plan for the regional housing targets allocated to Sausalito by ABAG and the Department of Housing and Community Development for the period of 2023 to 2031 and to affirmatively further fair housing. The project constitutes the actions necessary to implement Program 4 of the 6th Cycle Housing Element, entitled “Ensure Sites Inventory of Sites Accommodates RHNA throughout 6th Cycle Planning Period.” The City’s identified opportunity sites and RHNA strategy, as described in Program 4, would create a total capacity for development of 908 housing units, including a capacity for 647 units based on opportunity sites that would be subject to the program of rezoning as identified in the Housing Element. Sites proposed for rezoning include sites subject to a vote of the electorate under Ordinance 1022 and Ordinance 1128. Program 4 involves the City completing rezoning or adoption of overlay zones to allow densities at identified opportunity sites of 43-49 dwelling units/acre, 50-70 dwelling units/acre, or mixed use zoning of 43-49 dwelling units/acre with minimum of 85% residential required, to facilitate the development of a minimum of 724 housing units during the planning period.
