What are we doing?

The City is currently developing multi-family and mixed-use development standards and guidelines that will provide for a wide range of housing opportunities for people of all ages, incomes and backgrounds that enhance Palmdale’s high desert setting.

We would like to hear from you!

What type of housing design does Palmdale need for you, your children, your parents and your community? Join us for an important and informative virtual meeting. We want to hear your ideas for expanding housing choices in Palmdale.
