Community Workshop for City of Long Beach Housing Element
An interactive Community Workshop will be take place, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. March 23, at the Houghton Park Community Center.
The City of Long Beach is updating the Housing Element of the General Plan. The General Plan is the city’s master plan for the physical layout and future development of the city. The Housing Element is a critical component of the General Plan and is updated periodically as housing affordability continues to be a major issue in California. This update, for the 2014-2021 period, will identify constraints and opportunities for affordable housing and offer goals, policies, and programs to preserve and create housing in Long Beach.
The city wants your input to create an updated Housing Element that is responsive to the needs of the community.
