Community Survey to Assess Housing Needs

The City of Pleasanton is updating the Housing Element of its General Plan.  The Housing Element outlines the community's housing policies, goals, and programs, and identifies opportunities for new housing over the next eight years. 

The feedback provided in this survey will help inform and plan for the future of housing in Pleasanton and is intended to gather feedback and identify trends on housing preferences, needs, and future housing opportunities in the city. This is the first step in the ongoing community engagement process associated with updating Pleasanton's Housing Element.  Survey respondents will remain anonymous.

Questions 1 through 3 will help us understand how the responses to the survey compare to the overall Pleasanton community.  Questions 4 through 14 are intended to understand your opinions on various city-wide issues related to housing. Question 15 provides an opportunity for you to write in thoughts and suggestions not covered within other survey questions.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey!
