Housing Element

Housing Element Revised

On December 21, 2021, the City Council adopted the Housing Element for the next eight-year planning period (2021-2029), as required by state law. On January 11, 2022, the adopted Housing Element was submitted to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for a mandatory 60-day review. On March 11, 2022, the City received a letter from HCD with comments and has since revised the Housing Element to be responsive.  See Resources to view the  HCD comment letter and the Housing Element project timeline.

The City greatly appreciates the community’s continued participation and engagement in this challenging and unprecedented update process. As Lomita is required to plan for a significant increase in housing and population, there is a strong commitment to promote new in-fill developments that support community-serving businesses and a variety of housing types. The City’s Housing Element acknowledges the need for policies and programs that provide for the growth of the community with purpose.
