Letter to the Editor: Thanks TRPA

Special to the Sun

It was truly awesome last Wednesday! When it came time for the TRPA Governing Board to vote on affordable housing for Kings Beach, all the elements for a successful community innovation were present: The obvious human need that the board acknowledged following a walkabout in the community; wide citizen support with articulate advocates; and county, state and federal funding available.

The Placer County Redevelopment as a partner, and has leadership from Placer County Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery and experienced developer Meea Kang to pull all of the complex pieces together. The stars were in alignment!

It was particularly heartening to have this unanimous vote in support of affordable housing after years of community dialogue.
