DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The County is in the process of updating the Housing Element, which is one of the seven mandatory elements of El Dorado County's General Plan. This update is for the eight-year planning period of 2021 to 2029. The County has contracted with PlaceWorks, Inc. to assist with this effort that is anticipated to be completed by May 2021.

On August 18, 2020, staff and their consultants completed a public workshop for the West Slope of the County and another public workshop for the Tahoe area. Public comment and responses are provided as Attachment B.

On October 22, 2020, staff and their consultants completed a public workshop for the Planning Commission. Comments from that workshop are included as Attachment A.

This workshop for the Housing Element Update will include an overview of the state-mandated requirements including the Housing Element schedule overview, a discussion of the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) process, and an existing needs assessment, as well as access to special needs housing. The discussion will also include key changes to state housing law and associated changes to the Housing Element Update process.
