On July 18th, following seven months of extensive community outreach and public input, the City Council unanimously adopted the City’s first ever Housing Action Plan (HAP). The HAP, drafted by the Community Housing Committee (CHC) with input from residents, is a strategic plan that promotes more affordable and diverse housing in our community including multi-family rental units, small lot and higher density product types. 

The HAP establishes a vision for housing in Healdsburg that articulates the kind of housing we would like created in our community and sets quantifiable objectives of what should be accomplished by 2022 to achieve the Vision. Progress on each Objective will be assessed by setting a series of Targets that demonstrate achievement of the Objectives, and a series of Recommendations that are defined programs and actions that need to be taken to meet the Targets for each Objective.

Housing Action Plan

Over the past seven months,  the Community Housing Committee has been actively working with the community to prepare the City's first Housing Action Plan. The Housing Action Plan is a statement of the community's values and priorities related to housing and to form a 'call-to-action' for both City leadership and residents to more pro-actively shape the community's housing character and address our housing needs. The City of Healdsburg's Housing Action Plan is a companion document to other policy documents that inform, shape and direct the character and type of growth occurring in Healdsburg. These include the Strategic Plan, the General Plan, the Housing Element (which is part of the General Plan), the Land Use Code, the Inclusionary Housing Ordinance (which is part of the Land Use Code), the Urban Growth Boundary and the City's Growth Management Ordinance
