City of Firebaugh– 2023 – 2031 Housing Element
Public Review Draft Housing Element – Available for Review

The City is in the process of updating its Housing Element. The Housing Element is a required element of a City’s General Plan and must be updated every eight (8) years. This 6th Cycle Housing Element will cover the timeframe from 2023 – 2031 and must include goals, policies, and programs that address the maintenance, preservation, improvement, and development of housing in city limits. In addition, the Housing Element identifies sites appropriate for the development of housing.

Firebaugh, along with 13 other cities and the County are preparing a Multi-jurisdictional Housing Element Update for this 6th Cycle update. The Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element process provides an opportunity for countywide housing issues and needs to be more effectively addressed at the regional level rather than only at the local level.

This draft includes the Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element sections as well as Appendix 1C which is specific to the City of Firebaugh.

The Draft Housing Element is now available for review on the City’s website at the link below.
