Overview
You have a once in a decade opportunity to shape the future of housing in your Community!

Since 1969, Housing Elements have been a mandatory chapter of local General Plans in California. A Housing Element provides an analysis of a community’s housing needs for all income levels and strategies to provide for those needs. Updates are required every eight years. Our current element is for the 2015-2023 planning period; our updated element will be for 2023-2031. 

Our updated Housing Element will plan for the types and number of homes we need by 2031, which is defined by RHNA (Regional Housing Needs Allocation). The Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments has released the draft RHNA plan for 2023-2031, showing a need for 1,125 additional housing units in Pacific Grove. While the City of Pacific Grove doesn't build these homes, we ensure that rules are updated and programs are created so they can be built. 

Our updated Housing Element will include goals, policies, programs, and objectives to guide housing growth in Pacific Grove to meet our RHNA and related housing needs. For more information, check out this video

Creating a more affordable future is important to all of us. 
We encourage you to read about "Why Affordability Matters" in the Welcome Home Strategy we completed in 2021.
