DRAFT HOUSING ELEMENT DOCUMENTS:
HOUSING ELEMENT UPDATE
The City of La Cañada Flintridge is currently updating its Housing Element of the General Plan. Local governments across California are required by State Housing Element law to adequately plan to meet their share of the State’s overall housing need. The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is the State department that is responsible for administering Housing Element Law and for identifying the State’s overall housing need. To adequately plan for their share of the State’s housing need, local governments adopt Housing Elements as part of their General Plans. Housing Elements provide goals, policies, and programs to create opportunities for housing development.
The 6th Cycle Hosing Element will cover the eight-year planning period from October 2021-October 2029. The community was invited and encouraged to participate in the planning process by providing written comments and attending workshops and Public Hearing held by the Planning Commission and City Council. See link below for the project timeline and upcoming meetings.
This process began in January 2021 and outreach efforts started in March. See summary of the City’s outreach in preparation of the first draft.
The first draft of the 6th Cycle Housing Element was submitted to HCD on October 6, 2021. Here is a list of events since the first submittal.
