Draft 2023-2031 General Plan Housing Element

The draft Housing Element is available for public review and comment until June 13, 2022.

This draft Housing Element presents the City of Oakland’s strategy and commitment for how it will meet the housing needs of the community. In the face of a crushing regional housing crisis, the task is formidable, but essential: to make quality housing opportunities available to all Oakland residents through the Protection, Preservation, and Production of homes, and to address systemic housing inequity.
