Affordable Housing Fee Study


Placer County is pleased to announce the release of the Public Review Drafts of the Affordable Housing Fee studies.

The documents were prepared under contract with Mintier-Harnish in association with Hansford Economic Consulting. The purpose of the studies is to establish the reasonable relationship (nexus) between new residential and non-residential development and the demand created for additional affordable housing, and to determine the maximum justifiable affordable housing fees and present options for possible adoption of fees.
