Editor’s note: I received this press release from the League of Women Voters.
This program is the first in a two-part series on housing issues that the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County will present to kick off 2016. Members and friends are invited to join us at Peace Lutheran Church on Saturday, January 9, 2016 to hear a panel give us a snapshot on the current housing situation.
Our panel, comprised of Greg Bulanti, President, Nevada County Association of Realtors; Amy Wolfson, Planner, Nevada City Planner; Tom Last, Community Development Director, Grass Valley; and Tyler Barrington, Principal Planner, Nevada County Planning Department, will discuss housing availability and whether it’s sufficient to meet demand.
We will also learn about the latest issues involving local transient housing, and so-called “Airbnbs.” These panelists will provide the local perspective as well as supplying the bigger picture at both the state and national levels.
Refreshments and coffee service will begin at 9:30am, with the program starting at 10am. Peace Lutheran Church is located at 828 West Main Street in Grass Valley.
Part two of our series, to be presented at our February meeting, will discuss how the local housing situation impacts homelessness.
