Take our Community Survey!

The Merced County region is developing a multi-jurisdictional housing element (MJHE) for the sixth cycle housing element update. Jurisdictions participating in the joint effort are the County of Merced, and the cities of Atwater, Dos Palos, Gustine, Livingston, Los Banos, and Merced. The Housing Element is a policy document that provides a comprehensive strategy for promoting the production of available, affordable, and adequate housing within the Merced Region.

To ensure that the Housing Element includes policies that represent the values and ideas of the cities’ diverse populations, we want to hear from as many residents and community members as possible. This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Thank you for your time!
