Tuolumne County Community Development staff on Tuesday asked the county’s elected Board of Supervisors for guidance going forward on the county’s inclusionary housing ordinance, which provides incentives to housing developers who agree to provide 10% of completed units at affordable rates, like the Sierra Meadows subdivision off Jamestown Road.

Mike Lemke, of Lemke Homes, a former member of the county Housing Policy Committee, disbanded by the board in December, helped build the Sierra Meadows subdivision off Jamestown Road, approved by the county in March 2008, and its 45 homes include five that were built as affordable housing, which Lemke calls inclusionary homes.
