WALNUT CREEK -- Help shape the future of Walnut Creek's housing.
The city is holding a round-table meeting 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4 to discuss the city's housing needs. This is part of the city's update of its Housing Element, a state-required document that identifies a community's needs, resources, constraints and opportunities for providing housing. This next housing element update will cover 2015-2022.
"The city's goal is to support a diversity of housing options, densities and prices to meet the needs of current and future residents of all income levels and ages," according to a news release.
The housing element is also part of the city's general plan.
The stakeholder meeting Wednesday is for affordable-housing developers, senior housing advocates, the homeless, people with disabilities and other housing agencies. It is open to the public.
The city will also hold a community workshop in early December focusing on the housing element, and will solicit opinions online through a survey. To join the meeting at City Hall, 1666 N. Main St. on Wednesday, contact Margot Ernst, housing analyst, by e-mail at email@example.com or call 925-943-5899 ext. 2208.
