As the City moves forward with updating the Housing Element, we have more virtual opportunities for you to provide your input. The ongoing pandemic has pushed us to get creative from the safety of our homes, so we’re asking Long Beach residents to share your thoughts through a virtual open house, by recording a video, or sending us a photo or email comment. 

The Housing Element provides the City with a roadmap for accommodating the projected number of housing units needed to house existing and future City residents and guides future decisions that impact housing for the next eight years. The City is currently drafting an update to the Housing Element to fulfill requirements under state law. Your feedback is crucial to ensuring the update reflects the wants and needs of Long Beach residents. Opportunities to provide your feedback virtually anytime are included below. Additional virtual meetings and opportunities will be available later this spring, as the City continues its work in developing a draft plan.

Virtual Open House:
View a detailed overview of the Housing Element and update process and provide your feedback on various topics including goals for the 2021-2029 Housing Element update by participating in the Housing Element Virtual Open House.
