Meadow View Place at Schaffer’s Mill in Truckee

Meadow View Place at Schaffer’s Mill is a new affordable housing development that will soon be open to 56 families in Truckee, CA. Neighborhood Partners, LCC. is behind this project, which will offer a site layout that blends seamlessly with the natural beauty of the surrounding tree-filled Sierra Nevada landscape.

The residences, consisting of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units, are designed to take advantage of the climate by providing cross ventilation. Strong emphasis is placed on energy efficiency and use of natural daylight.

Stormwater and snow melt will be addressed with on- and off-site bio-retention areas.  The landscaping is complimentary with the local vernacular. The buildings will have rooftop solar panels to achieve zero-net-energy usage and help fulfill the projects commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
