Housing in Placer County - The Issues Addressed by Supervisor Jim Holmes

We understand the importance of affordable housing in Placer County. Let's explore some of the significant strides we've made in this critical area to ensure that everyone has access to safe and affordable housing.

Mercy Housing Partnership:

In 2015, Jim Holmes attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a Mercy Housing

Project on Vernon Street in Roseville.

During this event, he had a conversation with Mercy Housing Staff about the potential of bringing another Mercy Housing Project to vacant land at the Placer County Government Center (PCGC). This fruitful dialogue paved the way for the construction of Mercy North Auburn at Rock Creek, comprising 78 units of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment homes at the PCGC. These homes opened their doors in 2017, providing a haven for individuals and families in need.

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs):

Placer County recognizes the need for diverse housing options. To address this, the County is now offering permits for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). ADUs empower homeowners to add smaller, more affordable units to their properties, contributing to the overall housing supply and affordability.

State Mandates for Affordable Housing:

The State Legislature has mandated that Placer County takes action to promote affordable housing. In alignment with this mandate, willing Placer County property owners have the opportunity to rezone their properties for affordable housing, facilitating the creation of more affordable housing units throughout the county.

Jim Holmes is committed to championing these affordable housing initiatives to ensure that Placer County remains a place where everyone can find a safe and affordable place to call home. Stay tuned for updates on his efforts to make affordable housing a reality for all. Together, we can build a brighter and more inclusive future for our community.
