Housing Element and General Plan Update – Documents and Reports
The Draft 2023-2031 San Leandro Housing Element
The Housing Element is the City’s blueprint to meet the community’s housing needs over the next eight years. It provides a comprehensive strategy for promoting the production of available, affordable, and adequate housing to meet the needs of all San Leandrans. The Draft Housing Element was informed by public engagement from the beginning of the process.
On August 16, 2022, the City submitted the first Draft Housing Element to the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for review. HCD provided preliminary comments on the Draft Housing Element and revisions were made to address those comments. The Preliminary Review Comments Matrix lists the comments and the revisions that were made.
The revised Draft Housing Element was available for public comment from November 2 through November 9, 2022.
The Draft Housing Element was updated as a result of public comments received and the revised Draft Housing Element was submitted to HCD on November 10, 2022. Revisions are shown in track changes. Revisions made in response to HCD comments are highlighted in yellow and revisions made in response to public comments are highlighted in green. An Updated Response to Comments document can also be found below.
The revisions were incorporated into the Planning Commission Public Hearing Draft, which is in the Agenda Packet for the November 17, 2022 Planning Commission special meeting. The Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the City Council.
The City Council will consider adopting the Housing Element at a public hearing at 6:30 pm on December 5, 2022. The revised Draft Housing Element is included in the City Council Agenda Packet. Access the meeting via Zoom here.
