General Plan Housing Element Update

Updated: February 10, 2014

The General Plan contains the City's values and vision for its future.  Last updated in 2009, the Housing Element (9.8 MB) of the General Plan communicates goals, policies and programs to address Santa Ana's local and regional housing needs and a sustainable quality of life.

This past year the City has been working with the community to update the Housing Element and refine the City’s housing policy. This effort studied a variety of housing considerations including maintaining and improving current housing stock, housing for groups of special needs, and where housing can be developed. This is also an opportunity for the City to include relevant polices promoting health, safety, wellness and mobility as part of the Housing Element Update. Join in helping the City of Santa Ana with this important effort!
