The process for updating the City of Indio’s “Housing Element” is now underway. This plan for existing
and projected housing needs in Indio is required by the State of California every eight years, and the City
welcomes and encourages the community to participate.

The Southern California Association of Governments has identified that the City of Indio must plan for 7,793 housing units between October 2021 and October 2029.

Of those units, 2,954, or 38 percent, must fall into the category of  “affordable”.

The Housing Element will help determine how the City will accomplish this ambitious task, how affordable housing can be accelerated during this time frame, and also explore pro-housing policies and strategies that the City Council could adopt to help create more housing in Indio.

Three public outreach meetings are planned in order to receive feedback, answer questions, and provide more detail about new housing opportunities in the City of Indio that will meet the needs of all residents.

 Thursday, February 18, 2021, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

 Thursday, April 22, 2021, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

 Thursday, July 8, 2021, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Virtual meeting links will be available at www.indio.org/housingelementupdate and can also be viewed
live on the City’s Facebook page.

A community survey will also launch in late February and will be available at www.indio.org/housingelementupdate.

In addition, give us input or ask questions by leaving a voicemail at (760) 391-4061 or emailing [email protected]
