Housing Element Update (2023-2031)

6th Cycle Housing Element Update (2023-2031)

Background

Government Code Section 65588.5 requires jurisdictions to have adopted a Housing Element that is in substantial compliance with State Housing Element law no later than January 31, 2023.  The Monte Sereno City Council adopted its Housing Element on January 30, 2023, and made findings regarding why the City considered the Housing Element to be substantially compliant with State Housing Element law. The City continues to work with the state Department of Housing and Community Development to get the City’s Housing Element certified by the State.
