Notice of Public Meeting and Public Review and Comment Period for the Proposed Amendment to the City of Huntington Beach Housing Element

Notice of Public Meeting for the Proposed Huntington Beach Housing Element Amendment

Tuesday, September 8, 2015 at 4pm at Council Chambers located at 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach.   

The Housing Element is one of the seven State-mandated elements of the City’s General Plan and was last updated in 2013 for the 2013-2021 planning period pursuant to California Government Code Section 65588.   The Housing Element identifies and assesses the City’s existing and projected housing needs and provides an inventory of constraints and resources relevant to meeting these needs. The housing element must also identify how the City will meet its share of the regional housing need, commonly referred to as RHNA.

The City will be amending its 2013-2021 Housing Element to ensure that the City will continue to meet its RHNA goals for the remainder of the planning period. A City Council study session meeting is scheduled for the date and time listed above to discuss the Housing Element Amendment, including potential sites to accommodate the City’s remaining share of the RHNA for lower income households.  

An opportunity for public comment will be provided at the study session.
