The City's Housing Element is a state-required chapter or 'element' of the City of Tehachapi's long range General Plan. The Housing Element assesses the City's housing needs and housing stock conditions and establishes a roadmap to accommodate projected housing demands and each city's "fair share." This element sets citywide housing-related goals, objectives, policies and programs so the government and private sector can work together to address housing. This is a public process with input coming from community meetings, some of which have already been completed (information below) and others that will be scheduled in the future.

On July 10, 2023, members from the Tehachapi City Council, City Planning Commission and the public participated in a second workshop and study session to discuss the analysis of housing needs and next steps for the City's Housing Element.
