Housing and Human Services Committee

Mission and Purpose   

 Members of the Housing and Human Services Committee assess and identify housing opportunities and human needs for all segments of the community and provide input on both the City's Housing Element and Human Needs Element of the General Plan. They also inform and make recommendations to City Council and community leaders, and increase awareness of specific programs contained within the Housing Element to address these needs.
