HOUSING ELEMENT UPDATE
The State of California requires that all local governments prepare and maintain housing elements to identify strategies to conserve, rehabilitate, and provide housing to meet the existing and future needs of the community. Specific requirements concerning the scope and content of housing elements have been established by the State Legislature. The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is the State Agency that is responsible for ensuring that State housing law is being implemented at the local level. The responsibility of HCD involves reviewing and certifying housing elements prepared by local governments. The current HCD timetable calls for the submittal of the draft Housing Element within the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) planning area for review by October 15, 2013.
The City of Montebello is currently preparing an update to the Housing Element of its General Plan. Montebello’s last adopted Housing Element was in 1993 and addressed housing conditions between January 1, 1989, and December 31, 1997. Because the City did not adopt an updated element for the previous Housing Element planning periods, this Housing Element analyzes housing needs for the previous Housing Element cycles and the current 2014-2021 cycle.
