Housing Element

2019-2024 Public Review Draft Housing Element

The Housing Element is one of the seven state mandated elements of the Plumas County General Plan and provides the framework to address the existing and projected housing needs of all economic segments of the unincorporated area of Plumas County. Under state law, the Housing Element must address the County’s Regional Housing Needs Allocation and analyze the needs and issues of housing availability and affordability, among others. The Housing Element then sets forth goals, policies, and programs to address the identified needs and issues.
