Next Steps

The City has made minor revisions to the draft Housing Element to respond to public input and comments from the state housing agency. This draft will be available for public review until August 15, 2023. You can access the revised Housing Element sections at www.huntingtonparkgpupdates.com. Please submit all comments to lrodriguez@hpca.gov by 5 p.m. August 15, 2023. Thank you for your time and participation in the Housing Element Update process! 


The City is in the process of preparing the Housing Element of the General Plan for the 2021-2029 period as required by State law. The Housing Element establishes policies and programs to address Huntington Park’s existing and projected housing needs, including the City’s share of the regional housing need allocation (or “RHNA”).

Since 1969, Housing Elements have been mandatory portions of local general plans in California. Providing housing for all Californians is considered by the state legislature to be of vital statewide importance. A Housing Element provides an analysis of a community’s housing needs for all income levels and strategies to respond to those housing needs. It is a key part of the City’s overall General Plan. State Law establishes that each city accommodates its fair share of affordable housing to distribute housing needs throughout the state.
