Initial Draft of Housing Element

The initial draft is now available online. Please click here to download and view it!

City staff and its consultant team have been working with the Housing Element Update Advisory Committee (HEUAC) and the community over the past eight months to prepare an initial 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.

The HEUAC will also be discussing this draft at its Wednesday, March 17, 2021 meeting and its March 31, 2021 meeting.

A virtual public workshop was held on Monday, March 22, 2021. The Planning Commission and City Council reviewed the draft document in a study session at their April meetings. In May 2021, the City will transmit a progress draft to HCD for a preliminary 60-day review.

This is the very first draft of the document. There will be many more opportunities to help shape the draft General Plan Housing Element before its State-mandated adoption date in October 2021. The entire community is encouraged to participate and review it.
