2023-2031 Housing Element Update Amendments
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project consists of amendments to the 2023-2031 HEU to address comments from the California Department of Housing and Community Development, including additional targets for affirmatively furthering fair housing, actions to facilitate development on a site owned by the S. F. Bay Area Rapid Transit District, removing the former Naval Weapons Station from the HEU site inventory, and increasing maximum heights in three zoning districts to remove constraints (specific heights to be determined later). The intent of the HEU is to address the comprehensive housing needs of the City. State law requires jurisdictions to update their Housing Element every eight years to outline their existing and projected housing needs, to discuss barriers to providing that housing, and to propose actions to address housing needs and barriers. The programs proposed in the HEU will be implemented over an eight-year planning horizon (2023-2031). The HEU does not propose any specific development project and adoption of the HEU would not approve any physical development (e.g., construction of housing or infrastructure). The goals, policies, and actions in the HEU are required to meet the City's RHNA.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
(Common Sense Exemption) 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
Given that the amended HEU does not allow any specific development project or site specific rezoning, it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the HEU amendments may have a significant effect on the environment, and the HEU amendments are not subject to CEQA.
