General Plan Amendment

Planning for Housing, Environmental Justice and Safety

The City is embarking on updates to the Housing and Safety Elements of the General Plan and developing a new Environmental Justice Element.

News and Updates 

Ensure your priorities for housing and related services are heard by taking the online survey.

Check out the Housing Element StoryMap. The StoryMap will be updated for project milestones, virtual & physically-distanced outreach events, and includes interactive maps explaining how data and community feedback are incorporated in the update process.


A Housing Element is a plan for housing that is completed on an 8-year cycle. All cities and counties in California must prepare and adopt Housing Elements. The Housing Element will evaluate housing needs, identify sites for new housing, and include proposals or programs to meet housing needs for current and future residents.

The Safety Element identifies and mitigates risks to people and property in the community due to fires, floods, droughts, earthquakes, landslides, climate changes and other hazards. Click here for more information. 

Environmental Justice

This new element will establish policies that take into account the burdens experienced by disadvantaged communities and reduce the pollution and health risks to those communities by promoting equitable access to healthy food, housing, and recreation. Click here for more information.
