Save the DatePALMDALE – The City of Palmdale’s Planning Department is inviting Palmdale residents to participate in a meeting on housing issues.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 23 in the Development Services Conference Room, located at 38250 Sierra Highway.

“We are preparing our 2014-2021 Housing Element and would like to engage all the community in this process,” said Senior Planner Susan Koleda.  “The Housing Element is the main document that establishes the City’s housing policies.  It ensures that opportunities for decent, safe, affordable housing are available for all residents in Palmdale.”

The State of California requires cities to evaluate a number of topics within the Housing Element, including:

  1. Any obstacles to affordable housing production;
  2. Goals, objectives, and policies defining a city’s position on various housing issues; and
  3. A plan identifying the specific steps cities will take to implement its housing policies.

    One more time for the elite to tell us what a great thing Section 8 is!

    For us not them!

    There should be enforcement of the landscape maintenance code for all of these junky rental properties! There are far more investor owned properties in Palmdale than there are bank owned now, and the City seems unwilling to deal with occupied properties that have let their yards go. The regulations are on the books already and it is a finger in the eye to every responsible homeowner that they don’t want to enforce them.

    That’s great with all the rental homes being foreclosed regardless of tenants paying rent they hopefully would teach them how to fight back!
