CONCORD, CA (Oct. 6, 2021) — The City of Concord invites residents to join the first community meetings about its Housing Element Update, a plan for addressing the City’s housing needs from 2023 through 2031.

Participants will learn more about this process and how they can help shape the City’s decisions on housing. During the family-friendly outdoor town hall meeting on Oct. 16, lunch will be provided for the first 50 attendees.

There are two ways to participate:

  • In-person/Outdoors: Saturday, October 16 at the Concord Senior Center’s front patio (2727 Parkside Circle), 12-3 p.m. (open house format – come by anytime!)

The Housing Element Update is a state-mandated process overseen by the CA Department of Housing and Community Development. California requires all local governments to adequately plan to meet the housing needs of everyone in the community. Cities and counties fulfill this requirement by adopting housing plans as part of their general plan. Concord updates its Housing Element every eight years.
