What is the Housing Element?
The Housing Element is the City’s strategic plan for housing the City’s present and future residents. It is a comprehensive document that must include the following sections:
- An analysis of housing needs of the City’s population,
- An inventory of housing sites to accommodate future growth,
- An analysis of housing constraints that impact housing production,
- Programs that implement the City's housing policies,
- Action that promotes and furthers fair housing opportunities.
The State of California requires the City to update its Housing Element every eight years. So the City has begun updating its Housing Element for the next eight year period, 2023-2031.
