HOUSING ELEMENT UPDATE: 2002, 2009, 2013

Mintier Harnish was brought in as part of a multi-firm consulting team to work with the City of Folsom on its Housing Element in 2002 after the City was placed under a court order for non-compliance with State law. The team was able to achieve a certified housing element that included rezoning a substantial amount of land for higher-density residential uses. Mintier Harnish also worked with the City of Folsom on the 2009 Housing Element Update. The updated Housing Element involved the creation of new higher-density housing opportunities and the rezoning of land to accommodate a shortfall of lower-income units that could not be met with current zoning designations. Mintier Harnish was selected for a third Housing Element update in 2013. The 2013 Housing Element Update for the City of Folsom was adopted October 22, 2013.
