Housing Element Update Questionnaire

Sierra County wants to hear from you!  We are in the process of updating our Housing Element, which is part of the County’s General Plan.  This is a policy document that addresses existing and future housing needs for all residents residing in unincorporated area of Sierra County and economic groups.   The State of California requires by law that the Housing Element be updated periodically, generally every four to five years.  For this program, the County is updating the document for the 2024-2029 period.

Please share your thoughts, ideas, and concerns in the questionnaire below.  Thank you for your participation.
