Today, Placer Community Foundation CEO, Veronica Blake, attended the Placer County Board of Supervisors meeting where she advocated for affordable housing. Following, the board authorized county staff to execute a ground lease agreement with Mercy Housing which is the next step toward building a multi-family/workforce housing development on approximately 3 acres.
