PLACER COUNTY

HOUSING ELEMENT UPDATE: 2008 and 2013

Mintier Harnish completed a Housing Element Update for Placer County in 2008 and 2013. As part of the expanding Sacramento Region, Placer County has been one of the fastest growing counties in California. As such, the County faced the challenge of accommodating a large Regional Housing Needs Allocation of over 5,000 housing units. In addition, the eastern part of Placer County is located within the Tahoe Basin. Mintier Harnish prepared a section of the Housing Element to address the unique regulatory environment for development within the jurisdiction of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.
