Milpitas has officially kicked off the Housing Element Update process! Come join us on Monday, March 14 starting at 6pm for our first community workshop. The workshop will be held virtually but will be largely interactive. It will be an opportunity to learn more about the Housing Element Update and to share what you think the housing challenges and opportunities are in Milpitas. You can register for the virtual meeting by following this link: After you register, you should receive a confirmation email. If you encounter any issues, or have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to the Milpitas Housing Element team at
The Housing Element is part of the City’s General Plan. Its purpose is to facilitate the production of a variety of housing types, at different income levels, to accommodate all households and family types. Cities are required by state law to update their Housing Element every eight years, and the City of Milpitas is now updating its Housing Element to plan for the City’s projected housing needs during the next eight years between 2023 and 2031.
Community input and involvement is crucial to the success of this process. Residents and other members of the Milpitas community offer unique knowledge, perspectives, and experiences navigating housing and related issues in the city. Your participation can ensure that this process is equitable and reflects the values, needs and priorities of the community.
If you have any questions or need business assistance, please visit our website. Additionally, do not hesitate to contact the Office of Economic Development team by sending us an email. Assistance is available in English, Chinese, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, and other languages. The pandemic has created hardship for Milpitas families and businesses alike. Please know that we stand with you as you navigate your way out of the pandemic. We are here to help you!

In community spirit,
