Planning Committee Makes Headway On Inclusionary Ordinance

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — The Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors Planning Committee is working to finalize the inclusionary ordinance, but not without the public´s input.

Housing Affordability Task Force Chairman Jim O´Niel and representatives of the California Coalition on Rural Housing along with many other residents voiced their opinions today during the two-hour meeting.

Scott Patterson, past president of the Association of Realtors says he is concerned that the information used by the Housing Affordability Task Force is coming from only one source, the MLS.

The ordinance would require developers to designate a portion of their projects as affordable housing based on the mean average income of county residents.

The Planning Committee will hear presentations by the Tuolumne Board of Realtors as well as the Housing Affordability task force at their next meeting.

After it goes through the planning committee it will then be reviewed by the four different planning commissions that cover the county.
