Share feedback on Housing Priorities

Providing housing for all income levels is a focus for all Bay Area cities, including Palo Alto. Palo Alto has long been a leader in the production of affordable housing and currently has the second highest inventory of affordable housing in Santa Clara County (as a percentage of total housing stock). Share feedback on the City’s strategy for promoting safe, decent and affordable housing through the recent release of the draft 2023–2031 Housing Element. A new community update provides details on what’s included in the draft Housing Element, how this will guide future housing, and upcoming ways to share feedback.

  • $54 million contributed or pledged towards affordable housing.
  • Approximately 2,300 deed restricted affordable housing units produced to date since the City started requiring inclusionary housing.
  • Over 1000 housing units permitted in the last eight years.
