STAFF REPORT

A June 20 Placer County Grand Jury report has found that while Placer County has “taken positive steps to address the issue of affordable housing,” the current solution to addressing affordable housing in unincorporated Placer County is “inadequate” and the jury believes that “further actions are necessary.” These actions specifically involve considering a department/unit to address affordable housing, cleaning up the county’s in-lieu fee structure, simplifying the developer process, and focusing future forums on local developments and affordable alternatives.

Placer County Deputy CEO-Tahoe Jennifer Merchant told Moonshine Ink, “all of the recommendations that are in that grand jury report are addressed in what we’re thinking about tackling next year in one way or another.”
