Current Public Input Opportunities
Housing Plan Update
The City of Carlsbad is updating is housing plan, something required by state law to ensure the city is meeting the housing needs of all members of the community. This includes updating city housing policies and designating space for about 3,900 new housing units by 2029. The city is seeking input from the public on the draft housing plan. Feedback can be provided via mail or email through Dec. 14, 2020, to:

As the city grows the network of transportation options, we want to make sure we're providing choices that improve commuting, recreation and getting around the city overall. Learn more about the Sustainable Mobility Plan on the project webpage and provide feedback. Public input is open until Nov. 27.
For those ages 45 and older, what would make Carlsbad an age-friendly city? In partnership with the American Association of Retired Persons’ Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities and the San Diego Foundation, the city is creating its first Age-Friendly Action Plan. The goal of the plan is to outline the implementation of policies and programs that enhance the quality of life in the community for people of all ages and abilities. Learn more about Age-Friendly Carlsbad on the project webpage. Phase two public input is open until Dec. 18.
New City Hall and Civic Center
Even though most work is happening remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, city employees will eventually return to their offices to serve the public in person. That's why the city is continuing to plan a new consolidated city hall where the main administrative functions of the city could operate out of one location that also provides better meeting spaces including a larger City Council chamber and shared indoor and/or outdoor community spaces. For this next phase of public input, we’d like your thoughts on four potential city-owned locations that could be used for the new city hall and civic center. Learn more on the project webpage. Public input is open until Dec. 10.
