Housing Element at City Council 12/3

December 2nd, 2013

Housing Element Interested Parties and Task Force members,

The update to the Housing Element has been scheduled for full City Council tomorrow at 10am. We don’t know whether the item will be called “special” and have a discussion/hearing or not.

Sorry for the late notice, but the agenda was just posted.

The post City Planning Commission version of the document is available on the City Planning website

Some additional minor changes were made to this version at the City Council (Planning/Housing) Committee level, which can be tracked on the Council File site here (the 11/5 amendments and technical corrections)

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I’ll likely be sending just one more email after this to the group – when we have a final version of the document for your records. Thanks again for your interested and involvement.
