Housing Element Update
The City of Carlsbad is updating is housing plan, something required by state law to ensure the city is meeting the housing needs of all members of the community. This includes updating city housing policies and designating space for about 3,900 new housing units by 2029, of which about 2,100 units need to be affordable for people with very low to moderate incomes. The city gathered input through an online survey that was available from Aug. 7 - Aug. 24, 2020. to help develop a plan that best reflects the community's needs, values and priorities when it comes to new housing.
The City of Carlsbad’s Monroe Street Pool is 38 years old and needs consistent maintenance to remain operational and in compliance with current health and building codes. While the city makes required upgrades to continue the facility’s existing use, there is an opportunity to also make other enhancements to the pool and the associated buildings. City staff gathered input on three different approaches to this project through an online survey from Aug. 21 - Sept. 30, 2020. Input gathered will be provided to the City Council in the coming months to assist in deciding how ultimately to proceed with the project.
