Union City Housing Element Adopted January 27, 2015

The housing element of the General Plan bases its housing needs on the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) housing projections for new construction and Council approved this plan in January 2015 ahead of the 2040 General Plan Update. This housing plan needs to change by a majority of City Council votes NOW in order to save Open Space, Ramirez Farm, Historic farmhouse and Alameda Creek to make up our 77-acre parkland deficit. Public land has the greatest potential for parks and open space as the City can purchase this land before private developers purchase this for housing.

This land is planned to accommodate high-density housing including 17 to 30 units per acre totaling 201 housing units plus will also accommodate a private institution (a not for profit entity that pays no property taxes).
