The City of Davis launches a Virtual Community Workshop for the public to learn about and share their input on proposed strategies for promoting equitable housing.
The City of Davis is hosting a Virtual Community Workshop as part of the 2021 – 2029 Housing Element Update. Participants can watch an informational video to learn more about the Housing Element Update and provide their input on five proposed strategies for ensuring equitable and diverse housing options in Davis. Community members can participate online at www.davishousingelement.com now through Tuesday, March 23, 2021.
The City of Davis is preparing the Housing Element Update to evaluate current and future housing conditions and identify housing sites that will meet the community’s needs. Part of the Housing Element Update is completing the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA), which is a process that determines the amount of housing sites needed to accommodate future population growth. One of the primary goals of the Housing Element Update is to provide equitable housing opportunities for all residents. To meet this goal and also fulfill the RHNA requirement, the City is considering making changes to its zoning designations to ensure available sites for more diverse housing types. This would allow for more people such as early-career teachers, service workers, seniors, individuals with disabilities, and low-income populations to be able to live and work in Davis.
The City invites community members from throughout Davis to participate in the Virtual Community Workshop and provide their feedback at www.davishousingelement.com from now until Tuesday, March 23, 2021.
