On May 26, 2015, the City Council authorized City staff to submit the City’s Draft 2014-2023 Housing Element to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for review in accordance with Section 65585(b) of the California Government Code. Based on this authorization, City staff has submitted the Draft 2014-2023 Housing Element to HCD on May 27, 2015, and it is now available for a 60-day public review period.

After several public hearings starting in April of this year, the City Council has directed the placement of an item on the November 3, 2015 election ballot to seek voter consideration to switch from at-large elections to a “By District” format.
