Housing Element Best Practices

MidPen Housing has compiled a set of case studies to illustrate high-impact policies advanced in the last Housing Element cycle and suggest strategies based on successful implementation. This current cycle presents an important opportunity to build and expand upon what worked previously to plan for equitable growth.

The Housing Element is a key step to advance the infrastructure needed to support inclusive development through planning and building tools, and it is critical to take a tactical approach to site selection to realize feasible implementation. We hope these examples are useful to city partners and other community stakeholders.
