Housing Element Update Environmental Review

Housing Element Environmental Review

As part of the ongoing Housing Element Update process, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes has prepared a draft environmental document, which is now available at

The Initial Study/Negative Declaration (IS/ND) (PDF) evaluated the potential environmental impacts of the Draft Housing Element and determined it will not result in significant impacts. Please note that this study did not analyze the potential impacts of specific development projects as no plans for new development have been submitted and no zoning changes have been made. The Housing Element serves as a framework for the City to determine how to meet its state-mandated Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation of zoning for 647 new housing units through 2029.
