Suisun City, CA – May 25, 2023
The City of Suisun City is excited to announce that the California State Department of Housing and Community Development has certified its General Plan Housing Element as substantially compliant with state housing laws. This certification provides the City with maximum flexibility to implement our Housing Element, making the City eligible for state housing funds, and keeping us on track to receive certification as a Pro-Housing city.
Mayor Alma Hernandez praised the news, saying, "This is an important milestone for our city. We are committed to providing safe, affordable housing for all our residents, and this certification will help us achieve that goal."
City Manager Greg Folsom echoed the sentiment, stating, "We are thrilled to have our Housing Element certified. This is a testament to the hard work of our staff and the dedication of our community to ensuring that everyone has access to housing." Suisun City is one of only a few cities in the Bay Area with a state-certified Housing Element.
The Housing Element was adopted in early March and is designed to address the housing needs of Suisun City's residents from 2023 to 2031. It outlines the actions the city will take to promote the production of safe, affordable housing for both current and future residents, as well as the preservation and rehabilitation of existing affordable housing.
With this certification, Suisun City can move forward in implementing our Housing Element. "This milestone allows for greater local control as we engage in addressing the housing needs of our community and finding the right solutions," Mayor Hernandez stated. "This certification is an important step towards achieving that goal."
