As part of the ongoing Housing Element Update process, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes has prepared a draft environmental document, which is now available at rpvca.gov/housingelement.
The Initial Study/Negative Declaration (IS/ND) (PDF) evaluated the potential environmental impacts of the Draft Housing Element and determined it will not result in significant impacts. Please note that this study did not analyze the potential impacts of specific development projects as no plans for new development have been submitted and no zoning changes have been made. The Housing Element serves as a framework for the City to determine how to meet its state-mandated Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation of zoning for 647 new housing units through 2029.
Share your thoughts on the IS/ND through February 14 by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Public comments will be presented to the Planning Commission and the City Council when the Final Draft Housing Element is considered at meetings tentatively scheduled for March 2022.
