Coalinga 6th CYCLE Housing Element Update (2023 to 2031)

Fresno County and 15 cities in Fresno County are launching a Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element for the 6th round of housing element updates. Fresno COG is helping to coordinate the effort and this webpage will be the information center for the Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element. As the project progresses, this webpage will be updated with milestone documents and meeting announcements. Check back soon for more information!


The primary objective of the project is to prepare a regional plan for addressing housing needs through a single certified housing element for all 13 jurisdictions. The Fresno County Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element represents an innovate approach to meeting State Housing Element law and coordinating resources to address the region’s housing needs. 

Housing Element

The housing element is one of seven required elements of the general plan. However, it has several unique requirements that set it apart from the other six elements. State law (Government Code Section 65580 (et seq.)) specifies in detail the topics that the housing element must address and sets a schedule for regular updates. State law requires each local government to update its housing element every eight years. The housing element is also the only element reviewed and certified by the State for compliance with State law. The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is the State department responsible for this certification.

The Multi-Jurisdictional Housing Element covers the planning period of December 31, 2023, through December 31, 2031.
