Draft 2006-2014 Housing Element Released for Public Review

Dear Interested Parties:

The City of Los Angeles/Department of City Planning has released its draft of the 2006-2014 Housing Element Update and invites your review and comments. The Housing Element of the General Plan is the City’s blueprint for meeting its housing and growth challenges, identifying the City’s housing conditions and needs, establishing the goals, objectives, and policies that are the foundation of the City’s housing and growth strategy, and providing the array of programs the City intends to implement to create sustainable, mixed-income neighborhoods across the City.

The document is available for review electronically on the DCP website (http://cityplanning.lacity.org under "What’s New") and by hard copy at the City’s Central and Regional Libraries, Mayor and City Council field offices, and at the DCP public counters. We have scheduled seven public workshops to hear your thoughts, questions, and comments on the Draft Housing Element. A flyer with details about these workshops is also on the DCP website. For your convenience, a list of the workshop times and locations is below.

Written comments are also welcomed via email to Naomi.Guth@lacity.org through April 30, 2008. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Naomi Guth at (213)978-1363.

We encourage your participation and look forward to engaging in discussion with you regarding our City’s housing future.
