2019-2027 Housing Element Update

Draft 2019-2027 Housing Element 

The Draft 2019-2027 Housing Element assesses current and future housing needs, identifies constraints in meeting those housing needs, and establishes housing goals, policies, and actions. As recommended by the State, the Housing Element Update builds off the 2014-2019 Housing Element, reflects new statutory requirements, includes an analysis of existing housing programs and progress of those programs, and identifies new programs and adjustments to existing programs to be more effective.

The Town encourages the community to review the draft document to learn about and become engaged in the discussions about housing in our Town.  The public review and comment period for the draft Housing Element Update will be open from April 10, 2019 to May 10, 2019.  We hope this document is useful in gaining a better understanding of the Town's housing needs, the process to update the Housing Element and ways to engage in the discussions regarding housing policies for the Town.

Next Steps:

  • April 10, 2019, Planning and Economic Development Commission meeting:  The Commission is requested to consider an introduction to the General Plan Housing and Safety Element Updates (Resilient Mammoth Lakes), provide comments and feedback, and announce the public review period.
  • April 17, 2019, Community workshop with the Town Council to encourage public discussion and participation during the public review and comment period (April 10, 2019 - May 10, 2019).
