PROJECT DETAILS: Every eight years the City is required to update the Housing Element in order to comply with State requirements and identify sufficient suitable sites for the housing needs of the community as projected by the State and allocated by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). The existing Housing Element is set to expire in October 2021 at the conclusion of the current housing cycle. A draft Housing Element for the 2021-2029 cycle has been prepared by the City and is currently on public review on the project webpage at the following link: https://www.murrietaca.gov/1056/Housing-Element-Update
WORKSHOP: The purpose of the workshop is to provide the community an overview of the Housing Element Update, the process that the City’s update has followed, a summary of the draft update and the next steps as the City prepares for adoption of a new Housing Element. Any person may either submit written comments to City staff in advance of the workshop or may appear and be heard in person at the time of the workshop at City Hall, or virtually online.
