The community is encouraged to submit all comments by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 6, 2021 at ggcity.org/housing-element.

The City is updating the Housing Element, Safety Element, Land Use Element and Zoning Code and Map, and adopting a new Environmental Justice Element to the Garden Grove General Plan to establish policies mandated by the state. The Housing Element will identify housing needs and goals; the Safety Element will establish policies related to safety hazards; the Land Use Element and Zoning Code and Map will identify available land for open space, businesses, housing, and more; and the new Environmental Justice Element will establish goals to provide residents in the disadvantaged communities with access to healthy food, physical activity, and safe and sanitary housing.
