City of San Josť - Housing Department

August 22, 2014

 

Dear Community Members:

 

Every several years, cities are required to plan for their regional housing needs through the State Housing Element process.  Last fall, City staff from the Planning, Building and Code Enforcement Department (PBCE) and the Housing Department began planning for the 2014-22 housing needs projection period and the 2015-23 planning period by holding a series of community meetings and focus groups to provide information on the process, and to receive input on how to plan for those future needs.

 

A draft of the proposed Housing Element will be available soon. Once the draft is published, you will receive an announcement by email. The City will host several community meetings and hearings to receive public comment before the draft is submitted to the State of California for a 60-day review.  Additional public hearings will be announced in the fall leading up to City Council adoption in December 2014.

 

Each of the community meetings will cover the same material.  All are welcome so please feel free to invite your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and/or anyone else who may be interested.  Spanish and Vietnamese translation services are available if requested at least seven (7) days in advance by contacting Adam Marcus by email or by phone at 408.975.4451.
