LONG BEACH — On Dec. 5, the Long Beach Planning Commission voted 7-0 to approve the latest Housing Element proposal.  

The housing element is a state-required map on how to deal with housing needs in the city in an 8-year period, especially important now that the redevelopment agency has been dissolved.

The city must show to the state that it has a viable plan for 7,048 housing units. Of those, 4,009 units must be for people with moderate, low and very-low incomes.

The Long Beach City Council is scheduled to cast a final vote on the 2013-21 Housing Element in January. The deadline for the plan is Feb. 12.
