Housing Element Update 2021-2029

The City of Tustin has launched the 2021-2029 Update to the Housing Element of the City’s General Plan. Visit this webpage to learn more about the process, sign up for e-mail updates, participate in the on-line survey, and share your feedback. The 2014-2021 Housing Element, will remain active until the 2021-2029 Update is adopted (with a target adoption date of October 2021). 

The Housing Element is one of nine state-mandated elements of the General Plan. The Housing Element of the General Plan identifies the City’s housing needs and conditions, and establishes goals, objectives and policies that form the basis of the City’s vision and strategy for enhancing and preserving the community’s character, and expanding housing opportunities for all Tustin community members. The document also contains in-depth analysis and evaluation of the City’s population, economics, household side, housing stock, housing programs and regulations. 

The City Council adopted the 2014-2021 Housing Element  (see link below) in October 2013 and on November 6, 2013, the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) made a final determination that the Housing Element is in full compliance with State housing element law. The 2021-2029 Housing Element Update will build upon and revise, as appropriate, the goals, policies and programs of the existing Housing Element to ensure that the City can meet the housing needs of all Tustin residents through 2029, when the Housing Element is scheduled to be updated again.
