The Housing Element of the General Plan identifies the City of Roseville’s housing needs and establishes programs and policies to define how those needs will be met.  Housing Elements are updated on eight-year cycles and must be reviewed and approved by the California Housing and Community Development Department (HCD). The current Housing Element was adopted by City Council in 2013 and covers the period from 2013 to 2021. The proposed Project is the City’s sixth cycle Housing Element, which covers the period from 2021 to 2029.

The foundation of the Housing Element is the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA), which begins with a determination of housing need issued by HCD to regional planning agencies.  HCD determined the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) planning area needed to provide capacity for 153,512 total housing units. SACOG is required to prepare and adopt a methodology for allocating those units to each member jurisdiction. The Regional Housing Needs Plan was adopted by SACOG on March 19, 2020.  Accordingly, the City’s Housing Element must accommodate 12,066 total housing units. The Housing Element is required to demonstrate the City has sufficient vacant land to accommodate these units.

The Housing Element is a critical part of the City’s efforts to preserve, improve, and develop housing accessible to everyone in our community.  Public engagement and input are needed to ensure the development of successful policies and programs. Please consider signing up for our notification list, providing comments, and participating in the City’s outreach efforts.
