2014 Housing Element Update



 California Housing Element Law mandates the local agencies develop plans to supply housing to current and future residents, as one of seven mandatory elements required of General Plans, the principle document guiding growth decisions for local agencies.  Since the Fall of 2013 the County has been updating the current (2009) Housing Element for the next housing cycle planning period that runs from 2015 to 2023.  Public hearings and adoption of the updated 2014 Housing Element are planned to occur before the end of 2014.  The Draft Housing Element and related supporting documents are attached below.
