On January 26, 2023, Town staff sent the Draft 2023-2031 Housing Element to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) to start its 90-day review. HCD will review the Draft Housing Element for compliance with state law.
Next Steps for Review and Approval:The California HCD has 90-days to review and make comments on the Draft Housing Element. If the Draft Housing Element complies with state law in the judgement of the HCD, HCD will send the Town a comment letter stating that the Draft Housing Element is in substantial conformance with the housing law.
If the HCD requires changes to the Draft Housing Element, Town staff will meet with HCD staff to discuss how to move the Draft forward. The Town will then work towards addressing the comments from the State. The Town will also reconvene the Housing Element Advisory Committee (HEAC) and the Planning Commission to publicly review the HCD comments and proposed revisions to the Draft Housing Element. After the HEAC and Planning Commission finalize their review, the Town Council will conduct a public hearing for consideration of formal adoption of the Housing Element. That consideration is expected to occur in May 2023.
