Document Description
The Draft Kern County 2024 - 2031 Housing Element (henceforth referred to as the Project) is designed to address the projected housing needs of current and future unincorporated area County residents. The Project is mandated by the State of California, which has required the preparation and adoption of a Housing Element within every General Plan for every jurisdiction since 1969. On mandated intervals all jurisdiction in California are required to update their Housing Element pursuant to Section 65580-65589.8 of the Government Code. The development and preservation of adequate and affordable housing is important to the well-being of the residents and economic prosperity of Kern County. Kern County has adopted two (2) General Plans for the unincorporated areas; the Kern County General Plan and the Metropolitan Bakersfield General Plan, which was prepared and updated jointly, but adopted separately, with the City of Bakersfield and covers unincorporated areas within the Bakersfield City limits and Sphere of influence. This Housing Element is part of both general Plans and the use of the term "General Plan" in this document refers to both unincorporated areas only. The City of Bakersfield separately prepares and adopts its own Housing Element to cover areas within the city limits and under their jurisdiction.
