Colfax Planning Documents

In compliance with State law, the City of Colfax prepared a Public Review Draft of the Colfax Housing Element 2021-2029 and submitted the draft to the California Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) for review. After HCD completes its review, the City Council will consider HCD’s comments on the draft and adopt a Final Housing Element. The Final Housing Element will be transmitted to HCD for review and certification for compliance with State law.

The Housing Element includes the follow components:

  • Analysis of existing and projected housing needs
  • Inventory of available land for housing
  • Analysis of potential constraints on housing (e.g., permit-processing procedures, fees)
  • Evaluation of previous housing element
  • Goals, policies, and implementation programs

Public input is a key aspect of the City’s planning process and we encourage all members of the community to review the draft Housing Element and to provide comments for City Council consideration.  Comments should be provided no later than May 12, 2021 and may be mailed to: City of Colfax, PO Box 702, 33 South Main Street, Colfax, CA 95713 or sent via email to:
