Town Launches Housing Plan Simulation Tool

You are invited to help shape Danville’s future by creating your version of a housing element that achieves the minimum 2,241-unit target mandated by the State of California. Use the Housing Plan Simulation Tool to ‘add’ what you believe is the appropriate number of housing units to qualified housing sites.

The potential housing sites shown on this tool were identified through the Housing Site Suggestion Map public input process and staff analysis. Using this tool, the objective is to create a “balanced housing plan” that can accommodate Danville’s assignment of 2,241 housing units (plus a buffer). Cities are not required to build housing, but they are required to identify the lands on which housing could be built by the private market. All sites selected must meet criteria established by the State of California and are subject to its review and approval.

Identifying enough land to accommodate Danville’s housing assignment is a requirement of state housing law, enacted in 1969. This ‘site inventory’ analysis is part of the Draft Danville 2023-2031 Housing Element (“Draft Housing Element”), which is now available for a public review period that will conclude on August 1, 2022.

The release of this draft marks the beginning of many public review opportunities on the Draft Housing Element, leading to public hearings before the Planning Commission in December 2022 and final by the Town Council in January 2023.
