The Draft Housing Element is now available for review on both the  Forms/Applications page and the Public Notices page.

The City of Red Bluff has a unique small-town charm. Many of its wide tree-shaded streets are lined by large majestic Victorian homes. The Central Business District has many attractive two-story brick buildings of nineteenth century architecture. The Sacramento River meandering through town together with the surrounding mountains provide a spectacular natural setting with a serene rural atmosphere.

In 1980, the City Council, together with citizens within the community, became concerned about preserving the charm of the City. Out of this concern, the Planning process emerged. We hope that you find the information here useful. If you have any further questions, please contact us at (530) 527-2605 ext. 3059.
