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





That the City Council reviews 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 and provide responses to the specific questions included in the Discussion section of the report.





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 their 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 City Council with an overview of public outreach conducted to date and to share draft materials related to the City’s sites inventory to meet the Regional Housing Need Allocation (RHNA) and the Housing Plan, a set of policies and actions to ensure development of housing at a variety of income levels throughout the City during the next Housing Element cycle. Feedback from this Work Session will be summarized and addressed prior to submittal of the Draft Housing Element to the State Department of Housing and Community Development in August.
