The revised Draft Housing Element was submitted to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) on September 26, 2022 for a 90-day review period. The revised Draft Housing Element reflected changes approved by the Council at their August 3 and August 31, 2022, meetings, including a density reduction from 40-45 units per acre to 30-35 units per acre on housing element sites in the Downtown. Staff expects to receive comments from HCD by the end of December and will revise the draft document in response to those comments. A revised draft will be made available to the public at that time.
