The Housing Element of the General Plan, also called "the Plan to House LA," identifies Los Angeles’s housing needs and opportunities and establishes clear goals and objectives to inform future housing decisions. When the ongoing update to the Housing Element is completed, it will guide the creation and implementation of the City's housing policy from 2021 to 2029.
State law requires the City to update its Housing Element every eight years and demonstrate sufficient zoned capacity for housing to accommodate the number of units identified in the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA). City Planning is working alongside the Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) on the update.
This Summer, the City released a draft of the 2021-2029 Housing Element and Safety Element 2021 Update. Attend an informational webinar on the Housing and Safety Element Update to learn more about the drafts and participate in a question and answer session.
