The Housing Element is the City’s principal guide for housing programs and strategies. It helps the City meet the future housing needs and priorities of our community. It will offer a way to ensure we have enough sites for safe, decent, affordable housing for our community. We are updating our Housing Element for 2023 to 2031. We invite you to take part in outreach meetings, provide your input, and stay up-to-date on our progress.
We will host a variety of community engagement meetings and outreach events for the Housing Element Update. These events will include study sessions, community workshops, and a community survey. Your input will help guide our policies and programs. Let us know what matters to you.
