Housing Element Update

Housing Element Update

The City of Cloverdale is in the process of updating the Housing Element of the City’s General Plan to ensure that the City is prepared to meet the housing needs of Cloverdale in the next eight years. Under State law, every City and County in California is required to update its Housing Element to address specific requirements and submit the element to the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).

The Housing Element serves as Cloverdale’s blueprint for meeting the housing needs of our current and future residents and workforce, including people living at all economic levels and those with unique or specific housing needs.  

The Housing Element Update was formally adopted by the City Council on April 26, 2023, and submitted to HCD for certification on May 1, 2023. HCD's review is due back June 30, and comments are accepted on a continual basis to CloverdaleHousingElement@4leafinc.com or mailed/delivered to Cloverdale City Hall (124 N. Cloverdale Blvd).

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.
