Concord has released its draft Housing Element Update (HEU) for a 30-day public review period, and the overview was presented to the City Council on June 14. Council will convene a special meeting on Tuesday, June 21 to hear public comment on the draft document and to provide their own feedback and direction to staff.
The Housing Element is a required component of the City’s General Plan. It contains goals, policies, and programs to address the housing needs of all Concord residents from 2023 to 2031, including the City’s Regional Housing Needs Allocation of 5,073 units.
On June 21, the City Council will consider the draft HEU and provide input that will be incorporated into a revised draft. Public comments received throughout the review period will be documented and incorporated into the draft HEU, to the extent feasible and consistent with Council direction.
The draft document and instructions on how to provide comments are available on the project website: www.concordhousingelement.org.
