What is the Housing Element?
The housing element is one of the seven mandated elements of the local general plan, which is the Town’s “blueprint” for achieving residents’ vision for the future. Housing element law, enacted in 1969, mandates that local governments adequately plan to meet the existing and projected housing needs of all economic segments of the community. The law acknowledges that, in order for the private market to adequately address housing needs and demand, local governments must adopt land use plans and regulatory systems which provide opportunities for, and do not unduly constrain, housing development.
