Take our survey! The City also has a survey for community members to take as part of the Housing Element Update. Thank you to the over 400 people that have already taken the survey. If you haven’t, please take a few minutes to take it now in English or Spanish. The survey is an important part of the City’s effort to update our Housing Element for the 6th housing cycle (2023-2031) as part of state law.

The Housing Element update will include an analysis of housing needs, resources, and constraints, and articulates the City’s official policies and objectives for the development, preservation, and improvement of housing for all economic segments of the community.
