Updated Draft of Housing Element Now Available for Review!

City staff and its consultant team have been working with the Housing Element Update Advisory Committee (HEUAC), Planning Commission, City Council, and the community over the past 18 months to prepare a draft of the updated General Plan Housing Element. As a reminder, this effort is required by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) in response to the 6th Cycle Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation of 4,845 new housing units for Newport Beach.

An updated draft is now available online. Please click here to download and view it!

The City Council will be discussing this draft at its July 13, 2021 study session. Afterward, the City intends to transmit a progress draft to HCD for a preliminary 60-day review.

This is an early draft of the document. There will be additional opportunities to help shape it before it is adopted. The entire community is encouraged to participate and review it.
