CITY OF WALNUT CREEK

HOUSING ELEMENT UPDATE

Mintier Harnish worked with the City of Walnut Creek to update the City’s Housing Element for the 2015-2023 planning period. As part of the update, Mintier Harnish did a comprehensive update to the Housing Policy Plan to reflect the loss of redevelopment and new planning efforts at the BART station; conducted extensive outreach to stakeholders and the community; and assisted the City in preparing an online housing needs survey. HCD completed their review of the Draft Housing Element with minimal comments, and issued a conditional approval letter before the end of their 60-day review period. The City adopted the Housing Element in September 2014.
