Work Session on the Housing Resources, Sites Inventory and Housing Plan of the 2023-2031 Housing Element.                                          





The Planning Commission review and provides feedback on the two draft chapters of the 6th Cycle Housing Element related to Housing Resources and Sites Inventory and the Housing Plan which contains goals, policies and actions to support development of housing at all income levels in the City of Hayward.





This is a work session on Hayward’s 6th Cycle Housing Element (2023-2031). Pursuant to State Law, all local jurisdictions in California must update the Housing Element, a required chapter of the City’s General Plan every five to eight years. The City of Hayward is on an eight-year cycle. The last Housing Element was adopted on December 2, 2014, and the updated Housing Element is due January 31, 2023.


The purpose of this work session is to provide the Planning Commission with an overview of public outreach conducted to date and to share the draft materials related to the City’s sites inventory to meet the Regional Housing Need Allocation and the Housing Plan, which includes a set of policies and actions to ensure development of a housing at a variety of income levels throughout the City during the next Housing Element cycle. Feedback from this Work Session will be summarized in the Draft Housing Element and addressed prior to submittal to the State Department of Housing and Community Development later this summer.
