We want to hear from you! In the 2019-20 budget, the State of California allocated $250 million for all regions, cities, and counties to prioritize planning activities that accelerate housing production to meet identified needs of every community. With this allocation, the California Department of Housing & Community Development (HCD) established the LEAP Grant Program with $119 million for cities and counties. LEAP provides one-time grant funding to cities and counties to update their planning documents and implement process improvements that will facilitate the acceleration of housing production and help local governments prepare for their 6th cycle regional housing need assessment (RHNA) and implementation of the subsequent Housing Elements. The City was awarded a LEAP Grant, and the preparation of Multi-Family Residential Design Guidelines and process improvements are goals with part of the grant funds. To gather more public input on the architectural styles preferred in the city, the project team has put together an online survey. We want to know what designs catch your eye, what architectural styles you prefer, and other comments or concerns you may have regarding residential design.
Please take 10 to 15 minutes to read and complete the Objective Design Standards Survey online.
