The Board agreed that a loan from the Measure A Housing Fund could be allowed for the Housing Element update, but that repayment of this loan should be a priority as the Long Range Planning Fund is replenished. The Board also asked that the Housing Element Update be kept separate from the MLH strategic planning, and that Town and MLH staff meet to coordinate the Housing Element Update efforts.
