The Housing Section of the Planning Department performs a number of Housing functions. Over the past 20 years, County and Redevelopment Agency-sponsored housing efforts have provided assistance to over 1,000 affordable housing units, involving both new construction and renovation projects.

Current housing activities include partnering with non-profit affordable housing developers to build new affordable units and supporting a variety of efforts to create affordable housing opportunities in the community.
