California State law (Government Code Sections 65580 through 65589) mandates the contents of the Housing Element. By law, the Housing Element must contain:

  • an assessment of housing needs and an inventory of resources and constraints relevant to meeting those needs;

  • a statement of the community's goals, quantified objectives, and policies relating to the maintenance, preservation, improvement, and development of housing; and

  • a program that sets a schedule of actions that the City is undertaking, or intends to undertake, to achieve the goals and objectives of the housing element.
