Paso Robles housing element being updated
–The City of Paso Robles is updating its housing element, a required element of the general plan that includes goals and objectives to achieve housing for all economic segments of the community, including affordable housing.
The Paso Robles Planning Commission previously held a public hearing on Nov. 10 on the proposed housing element and recommended the Paso Robles City Council approve all the entitlement actions on a 5-0-2 (2 absent) vote. The council will be holding a public hearing on Dec. 1, to consider the adoption of the general plan housing element. Final adoption of the document and certification by the California Department of Housing and Community Development is required by Dec. 31, 2020 to remain in compliance with state laws. Therefore, once the City Council has adopted the element, the final version will be sent to HCD for certification.
Due to restrictions under the county emergency order and state executive orders, the meeting will not be physically open to the public, and planning commission members will be teleconferencing. You may participate in the meeting by live-streaming the meeting at the following link: www.prcity.com/youtube and submitting comments via email or over the phone: Call (805) 865-7276 to provide live public comment (the phone line will open just prior to the start of the meeting).
A copy of the public hearing draft housing element is available for review on the city’s website: https://www.prcity.com/260/Housing-Element
Copies of the project staff report for the public workshop will be available for review on the city website (https://www.prcity.com/agendacenter) on the Friday preceding the hearing.
