The City of Encinitas has been working on an update its Housing Plan to ensure that we’re prepared to meet the future housing needs of our community. Updating our Housing Plan will allow us to address the housing choices for our changing population and bring us into compliance with state law. It will provide a number of benefits to the City, protect our quality of life and save our tax dollars.  To learn more about the planning process and/or why planning for our future is important, please visit the project website at


As part of the effort to update the City’s Housing Plan, a series of outreach events were recently conducted to discuss housing-related issues and learn more about why we need to plan for future housing.  Through this outreach, community members were encouraged to provide input online through a new civic online tool, e-Town Hall, and identify locations where future housing opportunities should be accommodated.  More than 1,000 folks visited the website since opening the topic, and many valuable comments and suggestions were registered. 


City staff is currently reviewing the information and will present City Council and Planning Commission with an overview of the outreach on January 21, 2015 at City Hall at 6pm.  A Planning Commission and City Council Joint-Session Hearing will also be held on February 3rd and 5th (City Hall, 6pm) to review and discuss the feedback received on the Housing Plan through e-Town Hall.


Thank you and should you have any questions, please email us at
