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 18 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 is now available in redline-strikeout format using the links below.

This draft will be discussed at the July 13, 2021 City Council Study Session.
