On May 5, 2015, the Town Council adopted the 2015-2023 Housing Element for the Town of Los Gatos. The adopted Housing Element was certified by the State Housing and Community Development Department on May 20, 2015.
Between June 2012 and November 2013, the Town implemented the majority of the Housing Element’s policy actions via a series of General Plan, Zoning Ordinance, and Town Code amendments (e.g. Density Bonus, Zoning for Emergency Shelters and Transitional Housing, Revised Care/ Family Definitions, Reasonable Accommodation, and Multifamily Uses as a permitted land use, etc.).
In November 2013, the Town adopted an update to the Housing Element’s housing sites inventory which added additional potential housing sites and a series of related zoning ordinance amendments to implement the required Affordable Housing Overlay Zone Designation and Affordable Housing Overlay Zone Design Guidelines.
