Written by

The County of Humboldt is inviting citizens to participate in a series of meetings this summer on the 2014 Housing Element Update. The purpose of the meetings will be to get input on the draft Housing Element, which analyzes existing and projected housing needs, prior to taking it to the Planning Commission. The County intends each of these meetings to be brainstorming sessions, which will begin to lay the foundation of the draft Housing Element.

The following are some questions to be discussed at the meetings:
- What are your ideas for housing policy changes?
- How can we encourage housing development into the future?
- What could we do to make second units more feasible?
- Are there incentives the County should put into place to help create housing in commercial areas?
