Housing Element Update

Read the Public Review Draft Housing Element Update!

The City of Cloverdale is in the process of updating the Housing Element of the City’s General Plan to ensure that the City is prepared to meet the future housing needs of Cloverdale. Under State law, every City and County in California is required to update its Housing Element to address specific requirements and submit the element to the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).

The Housing Element serves as Cloverdale’s blueprint for meeting the housing needs of current and future residents at all economic levels including those with unique or specific housing needs. Participation from the community is vital to ensure that Cloverdale’s values are identified and articulated in the Housing Element, and that the City’s approach provides the best fit for the community’s goals, values and priorities. Public comment received on the Draft Housing Element will be incorporated into the Final Adopted Housing Element submitted to the state for review and anticipated for adoption in early 2023. 

The Draft Housing Element was first made available for public review from October 27 to November 27, 2022. On December 9, 2022, the Draft Housing Element was submitted to HCD for its 90-day review period. Comments could be submitted to the City and HCD at CloverdaleHousingElement@4leafinc.com or mailed/delivered to Cloverdale City Hall (124 N. Cloverdale Blvd).
