Draft Housing Element for Public Review

April 5, 2021

The City of Oceanside’s Draft Housing Element (2021-2029) is now available for public review and comment. You are encouraged to provide comments on the Draft Housing Element no later than May 7, 2021.

The State of California requires Oceanside to update its Housing Element every eight years and demonstrate that it can meet the housing needs of all community members regardless of income. The next Housing Element Cycle for Oceanside is effective from April 15, 2021 to April 15, 2029. The primary function of the Housing Element is to identify the housing needs of all Oceanside residents and provide goals and strategies for developing and preserving an adequate supply of housing for all income levels. The Housing Element places an emphasis on providing affordable housing opportunities for lower income households and special-needs groups.

The Draft Housing Element and additional information regarding the Housing Element Update is available at

Please direct questions and comments to project manager Rob Dmohowski, Senior Planner, at Rob Dmohowski at or (760) 435-3563.

The Draft Housing Element will be considered by the Planning Commission and City Council at public hearings expected in June 2021.
