Housing Element

The City of Folsom is currently updating the Housing Element.  The purpose of the housing element is to identify the community’s housing needs, to state the community’s goals and objectives with regard to housing production, rehabilitation, and conservation to meet those needs, and to define the policies and programs that the community will implement to achieve the stated goals and objectives.

State law requires cities and counties to address the needs of all income groups in their housing elements.  The official definition of these needs is provided by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for each city and county within its geographic jurisdiction.  Beyond these income-based housing needs, the housing element must also address special needs groups such as persons with disabilities and homeless persons.

The 2006-2013 Housing Element was adopted by City Council on July 14, 2009.  The new Housing Element is expected to be completed by the Fall 2013.  The City of Folsom’s Community Development Department is managing the update.

Additional information about the housing element and state requirements is available at the State Department of Housing and Community Development.
