How Does Placer Legacy Work?

  • It is totally voluntary. Only willing buyers and willing sellers participate.
  • It is based on the existing County General Plan and community plans, so it doesn't require land-use or zoning changes.
  • It is non-regulatory. No new regulations are adopted to meet the objectives of the program.
