Danville examines Housing Element

Planners present updated findings to commission

by Geoff Gillette

Danville town planners are taking a look at housing throughout the area as they begin the process of updating the town's housing element, a state-mandated part of the General Plan.

Chief of Planning Kevin Gailey discussed the update with members of the Planning Commission at their March 10 meeting. The Housing Element is the part of the plan that deals with the housing needs of people from all economic strata.

The last update was from 1999-2006. The update currently under way goes from 2007 through 2014. Under the state mandate, local governments must adequately plan to meet their existing and projected housing needs, including their share of the regional housing need. This is done through the Regional Housing Needs Plan (RHNP).
