[ARCHIVED] Draft Subsequent EIR for the Housing Element Update Available for Public Review

Housing Element Logo

The Town of Corte Madera is updating its Housing Element consistent with the requirements under State law. Part of the Housing Element Update requires that the Town identify adequate housing sites to accommodate the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA). In addition, the Town will need to amend the General Plan Land Use Element and the Municipal Code, including the Zoning Ordinance. In order to comply with additional State legislation, the Town will also be updating the Safety Element.

A subsequent Environment Impact Report (SEIR) has been prepared for the proposed project. The draft SEIR is available for a 45-day public review period. The Town of Corte Madera, acting as the lead agency, has determined that the Town of Corte Madera 2023-2031 Housing, Land Use, and Safety Elements Amendments and the Zoning Amendments could result in significant adverse environmental impacts. The draft SEIR identifies several potential environmental impacts that would result from the proposed project, including: Visual Resources & Aesthetics; Air Quality; Biological Resources; Noise; Public Services; Tribal Cultural Resources; and Transportation (Vehicle Miles Traveled). 

A copy of the draft SEIR is Available at the Town of Corte Madera Planning Department, 240 Tamal Vista Blvd., Suite 110, Corte Madera, CA 94925 as well as on Town’s housing website:
