January 5, 2021 (Beverly Hills, CA) – Beginning this month, the City of Beverly Hills will be advancing its work on the Housing Element update of its General Plan which will need to be completed by October 2021. The Housing Element will outline its future housing goals and identifies policies and programs that will be implemented to meet the needs of the community.
The State of California requires each jurisdiction’s housing element be updated every eight years and the final housing element must be approved and certified by the State. The City’s Housing Element update will cover the period from 2021 to 2029.
Throughout the next several months, the City’s Community Development staff will continue to work with City Council, the Planning Commission and the community to develop a draft plan for adoption that can be reviewed and approved by the State.
The City will host a variety of public meetings and workshops that residents are urged to participate in so that the feedback and data can be used for the draft plan.
The first virtual community meeting will be held on February 1, 2021 at 6 p.m. For meeting log-in details and for more information, visit beverlyhills.org/housingelementupdate.
