As a part of the obligation to inform the public about General Plan Updates, and the housing element in particular, the city has posted a legal notice with the full report available online or at City Hall. Public comments are welcome, and the deadline for input is November 8, 2021.
“The Housing Element Update applies citywide. Culver City is located in the westside region of Los Angeles County, and is developed with a variety of land uses including established residential neighborhoods, commercial corridors, industrial uses, public facilities, studios, cemeteries, and parks. See the project location figure.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: In compliance with Government Code Section 65580 et. seq., the City is updating its Housing Element for the planning period of 2021-2029. California Government Code Section 65302(c) mandates that each local agency within California includes a Housing Element in its General Plan. The 2021-2029 Housing Element provides a framework for meeting the housing needs of existing and future resident populations within the city based on the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) of 3,341 units. The Housing Element identifies and analyzes existing and projected housing needs within the city and includes the City’s goals, policies, quantified objectives, and scheduled programs to preserve, improve, and develop housing.
To accommodate RHNA, the 2021-2029 Housing Element identifies four strategies: applying two approaches to consolidate Low Density Two Family, Three Family, and Multiple Family designations into a new Incremental Infill designation; identifying sites for conversions/additions and redevelopment; identifying opportunity sites for future residential housing, intensifying existing multi-family neighborhoods, and integrating residential uses in commercial and industrial areas.
