Housing Element

The Housing Element of the General Plan is a guide for ensuring that the existing and future housing needs of our community are met. It specifies the City’s housing goals, policies and programs. This document describes the demographics of the community as well as the condition of the existing housing stock in the City.

As outlined in the Housing Element, the City will continue to encourage the development of affordable housing for senior and disabled persons, allow for greater ability for homeowners to construct second units, explore changes to City development standards for apartments and condominiums, and establish affordable housing requirements for new apartments and condominiums.

The City has been working to update the Housing Element for the 6th Cycle, which covers the period from 2021-2029. For more information, please visit:


On March 18, 2024, the City Council re-adopted the 2021-2029 Housing Element at their regular meeting.  The adopted Housing Element documents can be found below:
