Supervisors to discuss second-unit housing

Nevada County supervisors will take up an affordable housing-related issue Tuesday – the county’s second-dwelling-unit program.

Designed to increase the stock of affordable housing, the program has been criticized for being hamstrung with restrictions in very high fire zones.

The second-unit ordinance was debated during the supervisors races. Now, the board will discuss a progress report for the program adopted in March 2002.

Supervisors will discuss the topic Tuesday at the request of Supervisor Sue Horne.

The three year pilot program allows 30 new second-dwelling units per year.

Tuesday’s meeting also has several other items scheduled, including:

— Resolutions to revise departmental staffing and some salaries.

— Resolution to approve specs and put out bids for a screw conveyor system to be used by the Lake Wildwood Wastewater Treatment Plant.

— Acceptance of a report on programs funded by the Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act.
