With high median home prices and extremely low vacancy rates in the rental market, 54% of households in Placer County can’t afford a home in our community. Affordable housing is a challenge throughout California – learn about some tools in the toolbox to address this issue locally.
This two-hour housing workshop will focus on small-scale, high-quality infill residential projects that fall on the spectrum between low-density, single-family neighborhoods and large, high-density apartment complexes. Examples will includebungalow courts, duplexes, live/work units and other attainable housing types for our low to middle-income-earning households.Very few of these types of houses have been built in recent years due in part to regulatory constraints, automobile-dependent development trends and incentives for single-family home ownership.This workshop will provide an overview on the design and development of this type of housing. Attendees will be invited to participate in a discussion of challenges and opportunities to develop diverse housing types within unincorporated Placer County.
Come talk with the County of Placer and their planning experts from Environmental Science Associates (ESA) and economists from BAE Urban Economics about how to create a more diverse range of housing types.
Who should attend?Property Owners, City and County Elected Officials and staff, Planning Commission Members, Municipal Advisory Commission Members, Real Estate Professionals, residential design professionals, builders, funding agencies, housing stakeholders, and residents who are interested in creating housing types that are most fitting for their community.
