A shortage of quality, affordable housing is a problem in our region and across the state. To address this, the City of Eureka is increasing its efforts to stimulate the creation of new housing. Eureka is largely built out with little space to expand available land through annexation. Therefore, the City has created strategies in the its new General Plan and Zoning Code to stimulate more housing development

The five strategies are:

  1. Maximize Development Potential of the Few Remaining Vacant and Underutilized Sites
  2. Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)
  3. Internal Conversions
  4. Small-lot Subdivisions and Conservation Subdivisions
  5. Geographically-Dispersed Affordable Housing Through Affordable-by-Design Incentives and Local Density Bonuses
