On April 14, 2015, the City Council adopted the updated Hercules Housing Element for 2015-2023, as required by State law. To also meet the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act, the Council also adopted an Initial Study and Negative Declaration (MND). Pursuant to Government Code Section 65585(g), the City submitted the Housing Element to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), which on April 22, 2015 issued a certification letter confirming the adopted housing element as fully complying with State housing element law (Article 10.6 of the Government Code, Sections 65580-65589.8).  This update also included minor amendments to the Open Space & Conservation and Safety Elements to comply with state law.
