City staff and its consultant team have been working with the Housing Element Update Advisory Committee (HEUAC), Planning Commission, City Council, and the community over the past 20 months to prepare an initial draft of the updated General Plan Housing Element. As a reminder, this effort is required by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) in response to the 6th Cycle Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation of 4,845 new housing units for Newport Beach. For information on how the City has challenged this mandate, please visit www.newportbeachca.gov/housingactionplan.

The latest draft of the update was submitted on August 13, 2021 to HCD for a State-mandated 60-day preliminary review. Please use the links below to access it.
