Housing Element Update: Town to Submit Draft Housing Element for Review by HCD

Housing Element Logo

On January 10, 2023, the Town Council voted to permit Town staff to submit the Draft Housing Element to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). As required by the State, the HCD Draft Housing Element identifies sites that could support the development of 833 new housing units in San Anselmo by 2031. 

The Draft Housing Element will be submitted to HCD on January 25, 2023.  HCD will have 90-days to review the document and prepare a list of revisions the Town must make to comply with State Housing Element law.

Once the Town receives comments back from the HCD in April 2023, the Town will work towards addressing the comments from the State.  The Town will also reconvene the Housing Element Advisory Committee (HEAC) and the Planning Commission to publicly review the HCD comments and proposed revisions to the Draft Housing Element.  After the HEAC and Planning Commission finalize their review, the Town Council will conduct a public hearing for consideration of formal adoption of the Housing Element.  That consideration is expected to occur in May 2023.
