EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Earlier in 2021 work began on the required Housing Element Update (Update) for the State's Sixth Cycle Planning Period to address housing needs for the years 2023 through 2031. The Update must be completed by the County and certified by the State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) by January 2023. The Update is subject to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and it is necessary to develop the Update's project description over the course of the next several weeks in order to ensure that required CEQA documentation and process can be completed prior to HCD's review of the Update. To prepare the CEQA project description, Staff requests that the Board review, discuss and provide general direction on two questions: (1) what percentage of the existing RHNA sharing agreements with the cities/town should the County plan for in the unincorporated area; and (2) what criteria should be looked at in the selection of sites to be evaluated in the next Housing Element update, as well as potential housing sites or areas preliminarily identified by staff.
