The city of Vallejo 2015/23 Housing Elements Update is attached.
This is a critical document about our housing needs and proposed actions that I would urge you to review. Below is the tentative schedule of meetings:
Planning Commission Study Session: March 23, 2015
Planning Commission Public Hearing: April 6, 2015
City Council Public Hearing #1: April 28, 2015
City Council Public Hearing #2: May 12, 2015
I might suggest by first reading the goals /Policies/Programs section on the numbered pages 89 thru 108.
Pages numbered 8 thru 22 are the prior goals and what was accomplished–they represent the past and are less important if time is an issue for you.
Below is a description of what the Housing Element is:
- The Housing Element of the General Plan is a comprehensive statement by the City of its
current and future housing needs and proposed actions to facilitate the provision of housing
to meet those needs at all income levels[with a major focus on affordable housing]. The importance of compliance lies in the legal
responsibility the City has to maintain a certified Housing Element, which protects the City
against litigation and its associated costs and allows the City to be more competitive for State
Much of its focus is on affordable housing.
