The Housing Element Update identifies:
- Policies for new housing construction, rehabilitation and conservation of the existing affordable housing stock
- Strategies and programs focusing on: housing affordability, substandard housing rehabilitation, existing demand for new housing, eliminating housing development constraints, and maintaining an adequate supply of rental housing.
A goal of the Housing Plan Update 2018 is to ensure that the City embraces the distinct identity and character of its five communities and becomes a place where one can live their entire life with housing for all ages, incomes and abilities. The Draft Housing Element Update provides policies and programs to address these issues. The City of Encinitas envisions itself as a sustainable community that embraces its quality of life through environment, fiscal health, community health and equity.
