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. Combined with the proposed update to the Growth Management Ordinance, the Housing Action Plan will help to increase housing affordable to working families while maintaining our unique small town character.
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.
