B. The Housing Concept

The central goal of the Housing Element is to preserve neighborhood quality while improving housing opportunities for all residents. To accomplish this, the Element:

♦    Promotes neighborhood quality through the continuation of the existing residential land use pattern, and through the application of standards where infill development occurs to ensure compatibility.

♦    Promotes an adequate supply and variety of residential densities and housing types.

♦    Addresses the need for special needs housing and housing affordable at every income level.

♦    The City should track its progress toward meeting these goals and consider additional tools or strategies if appropriate progress is not being made.
