Providing housing for all Californians is a matter of statewide importance. To ensure that regional housing needs are being met, the State of California requires Alpine County to update the Housing Element of our General Plan approximately every five years. The Alpine County Housing Element Update is designed to provide an analysis of the County’s housing needs for all income levels, along with strategies to provide for those needs. This includes addressing the existing and projected housing needs for people of all incomes (very low, low, moderate and above moderate) and the needs of special populations, which include seniors, farmworkers, persons with disabilities, single parents, large families and homeless. Alpine County is currently drafting the 2021 Housing Element Update and we need your help.


Proporcionar vivienda a todos los Californianos es un asunto de importancia para todo el estado. Para asegurar que se cumplan las necesidades regionales de vivienda, el Estado de California requiere el condado de Alpine actualice el Elemento de Vivienda de su Plan General aproximadamente cada cinco años. La actualización del Elemento de Vivienda del condado de Alpine está diseñada para proporcionar un análisis de las necesidades de vivienda del condado para todos los niveles de ingresos, junto con estrategias para satisfacer esas necesidades. Esto incluye abordar las necesidades de vivienda existentes y proyectadas para personas de todos los ingresos (muy bajo, bajo, moderado y por encima del moderado) y las necesidades de poblaciones especiales, que incluyen personas mayores, trabajadores agrícolas, personas con discapacidades, padres solteros, familias numerosas y personas sin hogar. El condado de Alpine está redactando actualmente la actualización del Elemento de Vivienda 2021 y necesitamos su ayuda.
