Elk Grove is asking residents to weigh in on crafting the city's housing policies for the next eight years.
A public meeting to explore Elk Grove's housing needs is scheduled at 4 p.m. March 4 in the City Council chambers, 8400 Laguna Palms Way. The city is in the process of updating the housing element of its general plan.
The element, which guides the city's housing goals and policies, typically is revised every five to eight years. The City Council is expected to adopt a new housing element sometime this fall that will last through 2021.
The aim of the element is to maintain, improve and create housing opportunities for all economic segments of the population, said Christine Brainerd, city spokeswoman.
The city's current housing element can be viewed at www.egplanning.org.
The public can also send comments to housing program manager Sarah Bontrager, 8401 Laguna Palms Way, Elk Grove 95758, or email@example.com.
