Housing Element Update 2019-2027

The Nevada County Planning Department has commenced its 2019 – 2027 Housing Element Update process.

Section 65302(c) of the California Government Code requires that Nevada County adopt Housing Elements as part of the General Plan to analyize issues of housing availability, affordability, and needs within the community.  In addition, the Housing Element seeks to set goals, objectives, policies, programs and implementation strategies to address those issues.

As part of the update process, the County will be seeking input on the following types of housing issues:

  • How can Nevada County meet it regional housing needs?
  • What steps can be taken to provide more affordable housing within the County?
  • How can Nevada County seek to update is goals, objectives, policies and programs within the Housing Element?

It is very important that we hear from local residents and concerned agencies on these issues.  This workshop is directed towards individuals and agencies involved with housing issues, for-profit, non-profit housing developers, architects, and housing advocates which work with special housing needs.  The workshop will be conducted by County Planning Staff on:
