The Affordable Housing Task Force will consider the revised Housing Element and make specific recommendations to the Council for near-term action.
The work plan for the Task Force will include review of affordable housing-related materials that have been generated by or for the City in recent years, review of relevant resource material, and review of the goals and policies of our current Comprehensive Plan. The Task Force will then decide on detailed work necessary to deliver to the Council specific recommendations, including but not limited to recommended changes to City zoning codes and regulations, which would most effectively advance the stated goals of the Comprehensive Plan.
The Task Force will be asked to deliver its report to the Council in Q2, 2018. The Task Force will be dissolved upon acceptance of its report by the Council.
