2023-2031 Housing Element Update

In accordance with state law enacted in 1969, the Town of Danville - along with all California cities and counties - must update its Housing Element every eight years. As a policy document, the Housing Element identifies where and how Danville will accommodate the housing needs for people of all income groups. For the upcoming 2023-2031 planning period, the Town is expected to accommodate a minimum of 2,241 new homes, regardless of available land capacity. The Town's role is not to construct housing but to identify the most appropriate sites for potential construction.

How did this come to pass? The Housing Element update is the final step of a lengthy three-step process, involving three levels of government (state, regional and local). Learn more from the Housing Element Fact Sheet and Housing Element FAQs.

Your ideas matter. For now, local communities still have the authority to determine where it would be most appropriate to accommodate the assigned housing units. Join us at the upcoming hearings to provide input on the Draft 2023-2031 Housing Element.

Housing Site Suggestion Map

2 days

The Housing Element, a policy document mandated by the State of California, must identify where and how Danville will accommodate the housing needs for people of all income groups. For the upcoming 2023-2031 planning period, the Town has been assigned the task of accommodating a minimum of 2,241 new homes, regardless of available land capacity. 

Given the state mandate, residents are invited to contribute ideas on where new housing could be accommodated by dropping ‘pins’ on this online “Housing Site Suggestion Map.” All sites suggested will be evaluated against the California Department of Housing and Community Development site criteria. Feedback received from this activity will be used to inform a list of potential housing opportunity sites in part 2 of the engagement phase of community outreach.

Primary Considerations When Making a Housing Site Suggestion 

 1. Parcel Size

Any Parcel smaller than 1/2-acre is generally considered inadequate. However, several small parcels may be combined to create a larger lot.

2. Existing Uses 

Vacant underdeveloped sites are ideal, but non-vacant sites can be considered viable if:

  • Appear vacant or unused
  • Underutilized based on age, condition, etc.
  • Developer or owner has expressed interest
  • Property marketed for sale or lease

 3. Transportation Access

  • Easy access to transportation corridors
  • Easy access to goods and services 

 This mapping tool will be available for submissions through April 8.

CLOSED: This map consultation has concluded.
