The Santa Cruz County community will have multiple opportunities to collaborate throughout the update process by participating in community workshops, focus groups, online surveys, and Planning Commission/Board of Supervisor public meetings.

Participate in the County's Housing Element Update!
Updating the Housing Element takes input from everyone in the community. The County’s new 2023 Housing Element must accommodate 4,634 new housing units and provide a range of opportunities for all people in our community. Where should these housing units be accommodated? What are the barriers to finding housing in our community?
The Upcoming Events calendar below shows our public participation opportunities through June 28. Thereafter, additional opportunities for participation will be posted in the calendar below.
