2021-2029 Housing Element Update

Welcome to the City of La Palma’s Housing Element Update Page. The Housing Element is one of the seven elements required by the State to be included in the City’s General Plan. The Housing Element addresses adequate housing opportunities for present and future residents and provides the primary policy guidance for housing for the City’s decision-makers.

The City of La Palma kicked off the Housing Element Update in February 2020. Over the next year, City staff will be working with a consulting firm in coordination with our decision-makers and community to update the Housing Element for the 2021-2029 planning period.
