The City of Rancho Palos Verdes Second Draft Housing Element is now available!
All California cities are required to adopt a comprehensive General Plan to guide land-use planning decisions. The Housing Element is a key component that provides an analysis of a community’s housing needs for all income levels and strategies to respond to provide for those housing needs.
The Rancho Palos Verdes Second Draft Housing Element (PDF) outlines ways that the City can meet its state-required 6th Cycle Regional Housing Needs Assessment allocation of accommodating 647 housing units (including 8 units carried over from the 5th Cycle) in various income levels for the next planning period of 2021-2029.
This document includes revisions to the Housing Sites Inventory and additional analyses that were not part of the first draft (PDF) that was released in October 2021. The second draft was submitted to the California Department of Housing and Community Development Department on November 19, 2021 for the initial 60-day review and response period. Staff anticipates a response from HCD in January 2022, at which point further refinements will be made as part of the presentation of the final draft of the Housing Element to the Planning Commission and City Council tentatively scheduled for early spring 2022.
