City of San Diego seeking comments on future housing policies

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The City of San Diego is asking residents for their input on a draft document outlining the City’s future housing policies, goals and activities. City planners are looking for general comments on the document, as well as input on innovative ideas to incentivize homeowners to build companion units, how to help our elderly residents and other ways to engage residents about housing.

This input opportunity is part of an effort to refresh San Diego’s housing blueprint, also known as the Housing Element, of the City’s General Plan.

After public review, staff will prepare the final draft document. Ultimately, the updated Housing Element will be submitted to the City Council for adoption.

Brian Schoenfisch, program manager in Planning Department for the City of San Diego, was in studio to tell us more about this.

Comments on the Draft can be submitted through Friday, December 20th, 2019 to Elizabeth Dickson by email at EDickson@sandiego.gov or in writing to 9485 Aero Drive San Diego, CA 92123.
