The Housing Element is one of the required Elements of the General Plan. State law requires the Housing Element to be updated every eight years and to be reviewed and certified by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). As part of the General Plan Update, the City of Soledad is updating its Housing Element for the years 2023-2031. It will identify policy direction to meet the housing needs of the city, both by preserving existing homes and by clarifying priorities for housing creation. Due to State-required adoption deadlines, the Housing Element will be prepared on a more accelerated schedule than the rest of the General Plan.
