Housing Element Update
Housing Element Update Overview
The Planning and Inspection Department is preparing an update to the City of Santa Clara Housing Element for the 2015-2023 planning period. The Housing Element is an implementation mechanism of the City’s General Plan, adopted in 2010, and will provide goals, policies, and programs to meet the housing requirements mandated by the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development. Emphasis will be placed on developing a clear, concise, and legally-defensible Housing Element that meets the varied housing needs of the community. Please visit our Documents page to view the Draft Housing Element and related documents.
Community participation is a key part of the Housing Element update. The City will host a series of public outreach events at various locations over the course of the update process. Please let us know if you would like to participate in one of these activities. More information about the Housing Element update events can be found on the Meetings & Events page of this website.
