Housing Element Update 2019-2027

The City of Ukiah is embarking on its 2019-2027 Housing Element Update process (see the press release).

Section 65302(c) of the California Government Code requires that the City of Ukiah adopt a Housing Element as part of the General Plan to analyze issues of housing availability, affordability, and needs within the community. In addition, the Housing Element seeks to set goals, policies, programs and implementation strategies to address those issues. As part of the update process, the City will be seeking input and ideas from the community on the following types of housing issues:

  • How should the City address its regional housing need for the next eight years?
  • How should the goals, policies, and implementation tasks of the Housing Element be updated such that they are realistic, accessible, and responsive to the housing needs in the community?
