Concord, CA – 

Harris & Associates is excited to announce a new contract to support the City of Walnut Creek in its recent General Plan Update, involving updates to both the Housing and Safety Elements.

Harris will help the City prepare a Housing Element Update that effectively meets all legal and state requirements for the Regional Housing Needs Assessment for the City. The team will oversee all aspects of quality control, project management, community engagement, and collaboration with officials and key stakeholders.

“Our team offers a streamlined process that considers a community’s unique qualities and challenges,” said Harris CEO Steve Winchester. “We’re excited to help City of Walnut Creek create a more equitable and sustainable housing landscape for its citizens.” 

Hitta Mosesman, Vice President of Community Development and Housing, will be the Principal-in-Charge, on this project and has more than a decade experience providing housing planning and financial services for municipal agencies and non-profits. Veronica Tam, one of California’s most respected housing experts, joins her on the team.
