On March 24, 2022, the city launched the Piedmont Housing Puzzle, an online and interactive planning tool that gives Piedmont community members the chance to imagine where they would locate the 587 new housing units assigned to Piedmont by the California Department of Housing and Community Development and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG). Over 200 Piedmont community members have participated so far.
Residents have until May 1 to use the Piedmont Housing Puzzle to imagine where 587 new homes could be built. Participate here: https://piedmont.abalancingact.com/housingsim
Over 80 people attended the March 24 virtual community workshop hosted by the City of Piedmont about the next Housing Element sites. The City of Piedmont is preparing an update to the Piedmont Housing Element with the goal of enabling the construction of 587 new housing units, assigned to Piedmont by the State of California and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG). The draft of the next Housing Element will be published in mid-April. The Housing Element does not obligate property owners to build.
The deadline to use the Piedmont Housing Puzzle to develop and submit a housing plan for the next Piedmont Housing Element is May 1, 2022. For more information, visit https://Piedmontishome.org.
