The Housing Element is a required component of California cities’ general plans. The Housing Element describes the population characteristics and housing needs of the community, examines opportunities and constraints related to the development and improvement of housing, and sets forth policies and programs to encourage the provision and maintenance of housing for all economic segments of the community.

The purpose of the Housing Element is to identify the City’s housing needs and outline goals, policies and programs to address them. The Housing Element is a six-year plan, extending from July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2014, barring any extensions from the State. The primary issues addressed in the Housing Element include: 1) the provision of a decent home in a healthy environment for all economic levels of society, 2) housing affordability for special needs populations, 3) assisting in the development of affordable housing, 4) implementation of housing programs, and 5) rehabilitation and preservation of existing affordable housing.


To help meet housing needs of persons at all income levels who live or work in San Clemente, in a manner that is consistent with other General Plan goals, policies and programs.
