Certified Neighborhood Council members,
The 2013-2021 update to the City’s Housing Element has been released for public review and comment. The Housing Element is a State-required part of the City’s General Plan, which must be completed on a 8-year schedule to be in compliance. Hopefully some of you are aware of the project due to the efforts we made in attending the regional neighborhood council groups over the past couple months.
A Housing Element is meant to provide policy guidance for local decision making regarding housing programs and decisions. It is a comprehensive statement of City need, constraints and strategies to provide housing opportunities to existing and future residents.
The draft of the plan, as well as additional background information, can be found on the website below. Alternatively, the page can be accessed by looking under the “What’s New” portion of the Planning Department’s website:
We also want to welcome all members of the public to attend the Open House/Public Hearing scheduled for Saturday July 27, 2012 (10AM) at the Deaton Auditorium of the LAPD headquarters downtown. The public notice is attached. Please feel free to forward this to your contacts or other interested parties.
If you have any questions or comments on the draft and can not make it to the Open House/Public Hearing, we welcome you submit them directly to myself by email or regular mail (address below). Last day for public comments is August 8, 2013.
Thank you very much and we look forward to your input on this important long-range citywide policy/planning document.
