City’s housing element OK’d by State

Moreno Valley’s housing element has been approved by the state.

The Housing and Community Development Department approved the certification earlier this month, allowing Moreno Valley to chart its housing future for the next 20 years, according to a statement on the city’s website.

“A certified housing element is a huge step for Moreno Valley to achieve its full growth potential,” said Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez in the statement. “It also allows us to maintain local control on housing without intervention from the state.”

A housing element is major part of any city’s general plan. It’s a guideline for residential development that addresses housing growth and development.

Of the 197 jurisdictions in the Southern California Association of Governments, Moreno Valley is one of only 57 that has had its housing element approved. The city may now compete for federal, state, and regional housing grants, according to the statement.
