This Notice has been issued to advise that the City of Tracy hereby establishes a review period for a Draft Negative Declaration described further as follows:
Project Name: City of Tracy 2009 – 2014 General Plan Housing Element
Project Location: The coverage area of the Housing Element, as with all elements of the General Plan, includes the entire City and may affect some areas outside the City limits, within the Sphere of Influence, that may be annexed in the future.
The project is an update to the City of Tracy Housing Element, covering the planning period of July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2014. California State law mandates that all cities and counties prepare a Housing Element as part of their General Plan and periodically review and revise the Housing Element. The Housing Element is a policy document containing an analysis of the City’s demographic and housing characteristics; a review of potential constraints to meeting the City’s identified housing needs; an evaluation of resources available to address housing goals; and housing goals, policies, and programs to address Tracy’s identified housing needs.
