The 2021-2029 Glenn County Housing Element Update Public Review Draft is now available and a public workshop is scheduled in January to gather input from the community. 

“The Housing Element is a required element of the County’s General Plan and serves as a blueprint for meeting the housing needs of our residents, at all economic levels, and addressing special housing needs,” read a release issued by the planning department. 

According to the release, the Housing Element focuses on the unincorporated area of the county and includes population, household, and housing profile that addresses our unique characteristics; inventory of sites suitable to accommodate the County’s housing needs allocation; assessment of financial and programmatic resources for housing; analysis of fair housing issues; analysis of constraints, both governmental and non-governmental, to housing production; and goals, policies, and actions to address our current and projected housing needs. 

Hard copies for public review are available at the Planning and Community Development Services Agency office, the Board of Supervisors office and all County libraries, according to officials.
