Update on the 6th Cycle Housing Element

The Housing Element is a required chapter of the City’s General Plan. It establishes policies and programs that guide the development of housing over an 8-year period (also referred to as a Planning Cycle). State law requires all California jurisdictions update their Housing Elements every 8 years and receive certification from the California State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). Certification ensures Housing Elements are in substantial compliance with State housing law.

As of April 2024, the City has completed its update of the 6th Cycle Housing Element for 2023-2031 Planning Period. The Housing Element was certified by HCD on April 12, 2024. 

For updates on the Housing Element implementation, please see the City’s website or contact Jennifer Hagen at [email protected].
