Over the next ten years or so, should Walnut Creek focus on building more high-end homes? Or should there be a focus on middle and lower-income dwellings? What is the right balance that will meet the needs of current residents and businesses, and those anticipated to arrive in the future?
Those are the questions being asked at a workshop Wednesday, Sept. 4 at City Hall from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. as city officials begin soliciting opinions from developers, citizens and others regarding Walnut Creek's housing needs.
All this is in the name of updating the Housing Element, a document required by the state that outlines the city's plan to provide a mix of high, moderate and low income housing through the years 2015-2022.

3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
City Hall, 1666 North Main Street
3rd Floor Conference Room
A community workshop on the Housing Element is planned for early
December, and comments will be sought through an online survey.
