Our Housing Plan identifies specific actions the City will take to implement the goals and policies of the Housing Element. Our Housing Plan must accomplish the following:
- Provide adequate sites to achieve a variety and diversity of housing types. - Facilitate the development of affordable housing stock. - Promote equal housing opportunity. - Remove constraints to affordable housing development. - Address, and if necessary, improve the existing affordable housing.
Below are the housing programs that assist with the aforementioned goals and policies.
