The Housing Element of the General Plan is a guide for ensuring that the existing and future housing needs of our community are met. It specifies the City’s housing goals, policies and programs. This document describes the demographics of the community as well as the condition of the existing housing stock in the City.
As outlined in the Housing Element, the City will continue to encourage the development of affordable housing for senior and disabled persons, allow for greater ability for homeowners to construct second units, explore changes to City development standards for apartments and condominiums, and establish affordable housing requirements for new apartments and condominiums.
The State requires the City to submit an annual progress report by April 1 of each year. This Annual Report is a summary of progress made in accomplishing the identified programs in the City’s General Plan including progress made in accomplishing the housing programs identified in the City’s Housing Element.
On March 16, 2021 the City Council held a public hearing and directed staff to submit the 2020 Annual Report on General Plan and Housing Element Implementation to the State.
The report and City Council meeting video can be found here.
