Description: On October 7, 2021, the Planning Commission will hear the following project at its regularly scheduled meeting:

Proposed Project: The proposed project involves an update to the  Housing Element (6th Cycle) a required element of the City’s General Plan. The document sets citywide goals, objectives and policies for housing. It establishes a roadmap for accommodating projected housing unit demand for existing and future residents over the next eight years. As required by state law, the document shows how the City can accommodate demand for housing at all income levels, including through future rezoning of properties consistent with the adopted Land Use Element (LUE) of the General Plan.

Environmental Review: Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the State CEQA Guidelines, the City, as Lead Agency, prepared an addendum EIRA-02-21 to a previously certified Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) EIR 03-16, State Clearinghouse No. 2015051054 prepared for the General Plan Land Use Element (LUE) Update and Urban Design Element (UDE).
