City of Rosemead Housing Element Update (2021-2029)

The City of Rosemead, along with all jurisdictions throughout the State, is mandated by California State Law to prepare a Housing Element update for State certification. State housing law requires local governments to adequately facilitate the improvement and development of housing to meet the existing and projected housing needs of all economic segments of the community.

The Housing Element analyzes existing housing conditions, describes existing and future housing needs, and identifies opportunities for improving and expanding the City’s housing supply. This update covers the housing planning period between 2021 and 2029, often referred to as the 6th Cycle. Companion tasks to the Housing Element Update include focused updates to the General Plan relating to the Public Safety Element and addition of environmental justice policies to comply with State legislation.

On January 11, 2022, the City Council adopted the City’s 6th Cycle Housing Element for planning cycle 2021-2029. The Housing Element is currently under review by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for State certification.
