Mariposa County has completed the Draft 2014 –2019 Housing Element Update. The project is a required Element of the General Plan that applies to all of the land within the boundaries of Mariposa County.
The Housing Element Update establishes goals and institutes measures that meet the legislative intent to provide for the availability of housing to accommodate the needs of all economic segments of the County. The updated Housing Element includes all required components of the State Office of Planning and Research Guidelines for the preparation of Housing Elements.
The updated Housing Element Update identifies the County’s role and responsibility in attaining the State housing goals and regional housing needs, recognizing that Mariposa County is best able to determine how those goals and needs will be addressed.
The Housing Element Update, in and of itself, does not result in the development, construction or approval of any housing project that would result in the physical disturbance of land.
