December 5, 2012 – Sacramento, CA – The State of California Department of Housing and Community Development today issued a letter finding the County of Humboldt’s Adopted Revised Housing Element to be in “full compliance with State housing element law (Article 10.6 of the Government Code).”

The letter from Assistant Deputy Director Glen Campora to County Administrative Officer Phillip Smith-Hanes goes on to state that, “The Department’s review found the adopted revisions to the housing element to be substantially the same as the draft revisions reviewed by the Department on August 24, 2012 and determined to comply with statutory requirements.” Later, the letter notes: “The County now meets specific requirements for several State funding programs designed to reward local governments for compliance with State housing element law.”

“Obviously, we are pleased with the State’s determination,” said Board of Supervisors Chair Virginia Bass. “The County has gone through significant challenges to meet the requirements of State law. We certainly have more work to do, but I am excited to focus on the challenge of actually getting housing constructed.”
