The City of San Clemente (City) Community Development Department is seeking proposals from qualified consulting firm(s) to prepare an update of the City’s General Plan Housing and Safety Elements and corresponding environmental documents prepared in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”).
The purpose of this project is to update the Housing Element to be internally consistent with the City’s General Plan and in compliance with state statutes so as to be certified by HCD before October 2021. The Housing Element must be updated to include City policies, strategies, and actions to facilitate the construction of new housing and preservation of existing housing to meet the needs of the population during the planning period (2021-2029) for all economic segments. The Housing Element must also address the City’s Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation. Anticipated adoption of the final allocation is October 2020.
The Consultant shall prepare an environmental determination and analysis, in compliance with CEQA Guidelines, that assumes the maximum residential development for the sites identified in the Sites Analysis. This may result in a programmatic environmental document. The Consultant may present and discuss options with City staff.
