The City of Bishop is currently preparing the 2021-2029 Housing Element Update. The update will evaluate current and future housing conditions and identify housing sites that will meet the community’s needs. An important purpose of the Housing Element Update is to analyze the City of Bishop’s housing needs for all income levels, and to identify strategies to meet identified housing needs.

Public outreach is an important part of the Housing Element Update process, and the City has scheduled two opportunities for public input during March:

  • HOUSING SURVEY: The 2021 Housing Survey will be posted on the City’s Website (at www.cityofbishop.com/departments/planning/housing_element_update) starting on Tuesday, March 16. The survey will provide an opportunity for residents to share information about where housing should be located, and recommend housing strategies and programs. The Survey will remain online for your input through Friday, March 26.
  • PUBLIC MEETING: The City of Bishop is hosting a Virtual Community Workshop on Tuesday, March 24, at 5:30 pm as part of the 2021 – 2029 Housing Element Update. Participants can join the virtual workshop to learn more about the Housing Element Update and provide their input on proposed strategies for ensuring equitable and diverse housing options in Bishop. The zoom meeting information is also available on the City of Bishop Housing Element Update webpage.

The City invites community members from throughout Bishop to participate in the Virtual Community Workshop and provide their feedback at www.cityofbishop.com/housingelement from now until March 26, 2021.

For more information about the 2021-2029 Housing Element Update, please go to: www.cityofbishop.com/departments/planning/housing_element_update

Can we all agree on a happy New Year?

2020 was a year for the books. We entered it with Australia on fire, saw some justice in the #MeToo movement, and began the COVID-19 era. The U.S. felt powerful waves from the Black Lives Matter movement, which eventually hit worldwide, and had a moment of panic over “murder hornets.”  The West Coast caught on fire, we lost our Supreme Court Justice, and we saw the highest voter turnout in the presidential election since 1900, resulting in Joe Biden becoming President-Elect. And that’s not all!

2020 brought unique hardships. In review, most of it simply brought age-old issues to the forefront. Low-income folks and people of color were hit the hardest with COVID-19 – both health-wise and socioeconomically. IMACA knew from the beginning that we provided essential services to our communities. So, while we continue to learn from and adapt to 2020, we also appreciate the opportunities that resulted from such a crazy year!

IMACA has officially rebranded itself with the unveiling of our shiny new logo and the launch of our new and improved website. We are looking to the future, hopeful that 2021 brings relief. And we are always working hard to find more and better ways of serving Inyo and Mono counties.
