Whittier Housing Element Update
Posted On: November 8, 2013
The City of Whittier is currently updating its General Plan Housing Element for the Planning Period 2014-2021. The draft document identifies Whittier’s share of regional housing needs as well as the City’s policies, goals, objectives and programs to help develop and retain housing for all economic segments and special needs groups in the community. In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), an Initial Study has been prepared for the Whittier Housing Element Update. Based on the findings of the environmental Initial Study, a Notice of Intent to Adopt a Negative Declaration has been prepared and the public is encouraged to provide any comments on the environmental evaluation between November 8, 2013 through December 8, 2013. The City Council will be holding a public hearing on December 10, 2013, to take action on the Planning Commission's recommendation of November 18, 2013, to approve the Whittier Housing Element Update and forward the document to the State Department of Community Development for certification.
