Community Focus Amid State Mandates

The City of Yorba Linda is actively working to plan for the future of housing in our community. The City has collaborated with diverse community voices to develop a revised plan for Yorba Linda’s Housing Element, the State-required housing plan that every city must adopt. This revised Housing Element proposal reflects significant community feedback, protects open space, preserves the character of single-family neighborhoods and creates an opportunity to revitalize Savi Ranch with new local businesses and housing opportunities. Furthermore, the proposed zoning changes in the revised Housing Element will only affect 1.75% of the total land area in all of Yorba Linda. Consistent with Yorba Linda’s Right-to-Vote Amendment (also known as “Measure B”), voters will determine if the revised Housing Element moves forward.

Looking Ahead

Adopting a Housing Element is a critical requirement of State law. Failure to adopt a compliant Housing Element can result in loss of local land use control, expose our open space land to potential development, and create a risk where developers can bypass local design and density requirements using a provision called Builder’s Remedy. Residential housing would be built on developers’ terms, not our community’s; hence why Yorba Linda’s community participation is so important.

Stay Informed

Yorba Linda residents are encouraged to read about the revised Housing Element, review the parcels of land that have been proposed for zoning changes, and ask questions about the Housing Element process and why important decisions were made. All this information and more is available on YLLocalControl.com. Land use is complex and this document intends to provide a high-level overview of the law and requirements to stakeholders and community leaders.
