The City of Cloverdale has kicked off its Housing Element Update!
All cities in the State of California are required to maintain a General Plan and Housing Element, which is one of the required chapters of the General Plan. Unlike other components of the General Plan, which can be adopted within a flexible time frame (and generally occur every 15- 20 years), Housing Elements are required to be updated 8 years. The City of Cloverdale is eligible for the 8-year cycle. The City’s next housing element is required to be adopted by January 1, 2023, and will cover the years 2023-2031.
In May 2021, staff issued an RFP, and selected 4LEAF consultants to assist the City in completing the required “sixth cycled” Housing Element. The consultant will be presenting an overview of the process, including housing element requirements and process, and related housing law, and requesting input from the Commission and public.
On December 7, 2021 the Planning Commission kicked off its Housing Element Workshop. The City's consultant 4-Leaf provided the Planning Commission an overview of the process and outlined next steps.
