The City Council and Planning Commission will take part in a Housing Element Workshop on Thursday August 7, 2008. Start time for the meeting is 6pm in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 955 School Street.
The Housing Element is the part of the City’s General Plan that focuses on existing and future housing needs and how to address them. Strategies and programs in the new Housing Element will guide the City’s housing development and conservation efforts over the next several years.
The Council and Commission will be joined by members of the Citizen's Committee that is assisting in the Housing Element Update. Attendees at this meeting will hear what's being considered and help the Council and Commission identify which approaches should be included before a draft Housing Element is prepared. The Housing Element update must be completed by spring 2009.
Interested persons are invited to view the prepared exhibits on housing sites, design and density, community outreach and affordable housing starting at 6pm, with the start of the meeting set for 6:30pm.
