Speaker series to highlight housing issues, solutions in Placer County

Submitted to the Sun

TAHOE CITY, Calif. — The Placer County Community Development Resource Agency will host a free four-part virtual speaker series from June 1 to June 14 to provide information on options for housing in the region and explore questions about housing.

The speaker series will be broadcast via Zoom beginning 6 p.m. on June 1 beginning with Session 1: Demystifying Multifamily Housing, which will explore the difference between affordable housing restricted for income-qualifying residents and housing affordability.

The series will also hold two sessions on accessory dwelling unit development and provide insights into how residents can build, permit, and finance an ADU. In the last session, the series will dive into a presentation on the “missing middle” type of housing.
