Housing Element

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In accordance with state law, 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.


How did this come to pass? The Housing Element Update is the final step of a three-step process, involving three levels of government (state, regional and local), and where the trajectory of the outcome is set by the top two levels. Learn more about why and how Danville received this housing target and the Town's efforts in the preceding steps.
