Document Description
As part of the Housing Element update the City is required to establish and maintain multi-family and mixed-use land available to meet the target housing demand at all income levels over an eight-year period. To create adequate capacity for lower-income RHNA the 2021-2029 Housing Element includes Program H-2 to strategically increase densities in targeted areas of the City, including the East Bidwell Mixed-Use Overlay, Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) transit priority areas (Glenn and Iron Point light rail stations), and the Folsom Plan Area (FPA). To implement Program H-2 and increase opportunities for multi-family high density development to support lower income housing capacity in the City, the project includes amendments to the City’s General Plan and FPA Specific Plan. In total, the project would create capacity for up to 6,046 additional residential units in the City. This is the Draft EIR prepared for the project.
