City of Lomita Community Workshop on April 29 (Housing & Safety Elements)
An opportunity for Lomita residents, businesses and property owners to be informed and get involved
The City of Lomita is in the process of updating its Safety and Housing Elements to the General Plan. Both elements are components of the General Plan and are guided by State law.
The Safety Element outlines how the City minimizes, prepares for, responds to, and recovers from hazard events such as extreme heat, earthquakes, and wildfires. This includes identifying safe places to build, populations that may need extra help in responding to hazards, and how to ensure residents are prepared for hazards.
The Housing Element is a strategic vision and policy guide designed to help address the City’s housing needs, identify barriers or constrains to providing needed housing, and provide goals and policies to address these housing needs and constrains. Lomita’s projected housing needs for the 2021-2029 planning cycle is 829 units based on population and household growth.*
*Per the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) as mandated by State Housing Law as part of the periodic process of updating local housing elements of the General Plan.
