    Project Description: A Housing Element is a plan for housing that is completed on an 8-year cycle. All cities and counties in California must prepare and adopt Housing Elements. The Housing Element is one of the seven mandated elements of the General Plan, and must be updated on a schedule that is set by state law. Sonoma County’s 6th Cycle Housing Element update is due on January 31, 2023.

    The County of Sonoma is updating its Housing Element as required by State law for the 6th Cycle (2023-2031). The update provides an analysis of the County’s housing needs for all income levels, and generates strategies to respond to those needs, and to provide enough homes for current and future community members.

    The Draft 6th Cycle Housing Element was released for public review on November 3, 2022. Permit Sonoma will present a virtual workshop to present the draft, answer questions, and request that Commissioners, Councilmembers, and the public provide written comments on the draft.

    Public comments must be received by 11:59 pm on December 4, 2022. Comments are accepted via email to or by regular mail to Permit Sonoma, Attn: Eric Gage, 2550 Ventura Ave., Santa Rosa, California 95403.
