Updated Draft Housing Element Submitted to HCD for Mandatory Review and Now Available Online

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 20 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.

As part of the preparation process, the City must submit a draft to HCD for a 60-day preliminary review. The City submitted its latest draft to HCD today (Friday).

This updated draft has been made available online. Please click here to download and view it!

This is still a draft document. There will be additional opportunities to help shape it before it is adopted. The entire community is encouraged to participate and review it.


If you have any questions or to submit comments, please reach out to City staff by emailing GPUpdate@newportbeachca.gov.

The City greatly appreciates the community’s continued participation and engagement in this challenging and unprecedented update process.
