The Housing Element is one of the
required elements of the General Plan. It will identify policy direction
to meet the housing needs of the City, both by preserving existing
homes and by clarifying priorities for new construction. The plan will
include an overview of housing policies and programs and will identify
locations that can accommodate future housing.
For more information, please review the Housing Element FAQ.
The draft General Plan Housing Element outlines the strategies and
policies the City will implement over the next eight years in order to
meet Oakland’s housing needs. The Housing Element was last updated in
2015 and is now being updated with public input to reflect the recent
housing opportunities, challenges, and approaches that have emerged in
the Oakland community, as well as to comply with new state laws.
