The General Plan Housing Element is required pursuant to California Government Code Section 65580 et seq., and works to provide housing for all of Inyo County’s residents.  Housing Element law is one of the most complicated of the General Plan Elements and it must be approved by the State. The County’s Housing Element was first adopted in 1992 and updated in 2001, 2003, 2009, 2014 and most recently in 2022, which was subsequently revised in September 2023.
