Background Information

The Housing Element is a state-mandated and city-initiated policy document included in the City of Coronado General Plan. The Housing Element identifies policies and programs to meet existing and projected future housing needs for all economic segments in the City. The Housing Element update will identify specific actions to be taken over the 2021-2029 planning period related to housing.

The City’s current Housing Element, its 5th Cycle, was adopted by the City Council in February 2013 and certified by the state Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) in March 2013. The adopted Housing Element covers the planning period from January 01, 2013, through April 30, 2021.

The City is currently implementing the current Housing Element’s goals, programs and actions. To comply with state law, the City’s Housing Element must be updated to ensure Coronado’s policies and programs can accommodate the estimated housing growth need identified in the San Diego Association of Governments' Regional Housing Needs Assessment allocation for the 2021-2029 planning period. The 6th Cycle Housing Element will require state review for compliance with existing law.

Notwithstanding the City’s legal challenge to address a housing allocation that assigned Coronado an 1,800% increase from its prior housing allocation cycle, the City is statutorily required to move forward with the Housing Element update.
