Housing Element

The housing goal for the State of California is for every Californian to have access to a decent home and suitable living environment. Recognizing the important role that local governments play in pursuit of this goal, the Legislature has mandated that all cities and counties prepare a Housing Element as part of their comprehensive General Plan (California Government Code Section 65302 (c)).

The Housing Element may be viewed at the following locations:
Additional information, including the 2020 Housing Element Annual Progress Report and plans to update the Housing Element for the 2023-2031 planning cycle can be found on the City's General Plan Housing Element webpage.
