Please join your San Leandro neighbors for an important community meeting on housing issues in our community. The meeting will provide a chance to learn about San Leandro’s future plans and share your thoughts about how to improve housing opportunities for all San Leandro residents.

San Leandro is required by state law to adopt a new housing plan (called the “Housing Element”) by January 31, 2015. The plan describes housing needs, opportunities, and constraints in the city, and includes policies and actions to improve housing conditions.

Updating the Housing Element is the first step in a two year process to update the entire San Leandro General Plan, the blueprint for the City’s growth and development for the next 20 years.
