Public Engagement


The Housing Element Update project will include lots of ways to get involved. In the beginning of the project, the project team will be sharing helpful information through this website, several City websites, newsletters, local newspapers, community events, and public meetings. We want to make sure you know what the project is about so you can share your ideas, concerns, and questions throughout.

Later, we will want to hear what you think about potential strategies and recommendations that will go in the Housing Element.

Community Survey


A community survey was conducted in February and March 2021. This survey began at the Community Workshop and was open for three weeks. The survey sought feedback, experiences, concerns, and ideas as it relates to living in Alhambra, moving here, building new housing, maintaining housing, or offering housing services and assistance to those in need. This input will be used to inform the Housing Element as it is prepared.

Missed the community survey? No problem.

There will be more opportunities to get involved and provide your input, feedback, and experiences. In addition, you can email your thoughts, ideas, and feedback at anytime to
