The release of the draft Housing Element represents a significant milestone in the Town’s progress toward addressing housing needs and issues over the next decade and meeting State requirements for completing such work within prescribed timelines.  Chapters 1-3 of the draft Housing Element includes much of the information discussed during community workshops and events over the last nine months, including information regarding how the Town intends to meet its Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA).  Chapter 5 includes proposed Goals, Policies, and Programs, many of which have been carried forward from the Town’s current Housing Element, and others which are intended to address public comments and input received through community engagement efforts.  Appendix A includes a comprehensive summary of the public engagement conducted by the Town and the feedback received through various workshops, meetings and events.  
The draft update to the Town’s Safety Element (Chapters 7 and 8 of the Town’s General Plan) draws upon the Town’s recently completed Climate Adaptation Assessment (May 2021) in order to meet State requirements for integrating information and programs related to wildfire, sea level rise and climate resiliency into the Town’s General Plan.

Learn more about the development of the Housing and Safety Elements at the housing webpage or by talking to staff at community pop-up events. 

Final Pop-up Event
  • August 3rd from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm: Farmers Market at Town Center
