EL DORADO COUNTY HOUSING PLAN RELEASED

FOR PUBLIC REVIEW 


(PLACERVILLE, CA) ā€“ El Dorado County's housing plan is available for public comment and has been submitted to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for review.  The "2021-2029 Housing Element Update" is the County's plan for addressing the housing needs of residents of all income levels in the unincorporated areas of the county.

 

The Public Review Draft of the 2021-2029 Housing Element Update is available on the County Long Range Planning web site at www.edcgov.us/government/LongRangePlanning.

 

The major updates and required changes are centered on the revised housing allocations based on the Regional Housing Needs Assessment, an update of the inventory using the General Plan land use designations, addressing Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing in accordance with state law and a review of the success in meeting the goals and objectives of the previously adopted element.

 

The Planning and Building Department will accept public comments through July 8, 2021 which will be incorporated into the final draft document for Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors review. The Housing Element is tentatively scheduled for approval by the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors in August 2021.
