The California Apartment Association this month co-hosted a virtual housing summit for multifamily housing developers in the Placer County region.

The July 24 meeting attracted elected officials from Placer County, Roseville and Rocklin, as well as city and county staff, and multifamily developers.

During the meeting, developers, elected officials, and staff discussed ways to reduce financial and regulatory barriers to market-rate and affordable multifamily housing projects. They also discussed how the region should explore a “right sized” approach to fee schedules for multifamily units, such as possibly using a per-square-foot calculation of fees versus a per-unit calculation.

“CAA is committed to working with local governments to increase the supply of housing,” said Mallori Spilker, CAA’s vice president of local public affairs. “This forum provided an opportunity for CAA to bring housing developers and city and county leaders together to discuss the impediments to delivering more affordable homes.”

Developers at the event also received updates from Placer County District 1 Supervisor Bonnie Gore; Placer County Principal Planner Shawna Purvines; Roseville Vice Mayor Krista Bernasconi; Roseville Senior Planner Lauren Hocker; and Rocklin Vice Mayor Jill Gayaldo.

In addition to CAA, event hosts included the North State Building Industry Association and the Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange.
