Section 65400 of the California Government Code requires that the General Plan Annual Report be presented each year to the local legislative body for its review and acceptance.  This report describes the City’s progress in implementing its General Plan and Housing Element during the previous calendar year, and is required to be sent to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research and the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).


The Housing Element was adopted by the City Council on October 1, 2013, and certified by HCD on November 20, 2013.  The General Plan was adopted by the City Council on July 6, 2010.  Staff has reviewed the General Plan and Housing Element to determine the status of their implementation for the previous calendar year of 2015 in accordance with the State’s guidelines.  The Planning Commission reviewed the 2015 Annual Reports at the May 16, 2016 Planning Commission meeting, and recommended the City Council receive and file the reports.



Since the General Plan was adopted in 2010, Planning staff has been working with staff from several departments to review the General Plan goals, policies, and actions, as well as to develop an implementation program for the adopted General Plan. The Implementation Program Table, attached as Exhibit A to the General Plan Annual Report, incorporates the goals and action statements from the General Plan that have been addressed or were in the process of completion for the year 2015. Exhibit B of the report summarizes the progress made during 2015 towards meeting the goals and objectives of the City’s 2013-2021 Housing Element. During the 2015 calendar year, the City continued to implement many General Plan goals and policies through ongoing City programs, private development, and capital improvement projects. The City also continued to implement the Housing Element and add to the region’s supply of affordable housing through the multiple housing programs offered by the City.


Once the City Council completes its review of the annual reports, staff will forward copies of these documents to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research and the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
