Michael has plans to create housing solutions that will increase homeownership and rental opportunities in Nevada County. Please see his proposals at www.mtaylor4district1.com/housing-crisis.
Code Compliance Oversight
Michael is working hard to ensure that the Code Compliance Division respects you and your property rights. He plans to bring fair and just oversight to the Code Compliance Division so that you can trust the County.
Forestry & Fire Management
As a private firefighter with logging experience, Michael has real-world insight into the fire safety management strategies Nevada County needs.
Michael does not support raising or creating any new Community Development Agency fees or county taxes.
Craft Cannabis Cultivation
Michael supports craft and cooperative cannabis cultivation in rural Nevada County. He believes it’s vital we limit large, commercial grows while simultaneously making the application and permitting process more streamlined for small, boutique “Mom & Pop” operations. He also intends to work on policy that will modify the non-remuneration program and make it possible for providers, medical patients and recreational users to grow cannabis cooperatively.
High Speed Internet
Michael believes access to high-speed internet will attract new, young entrepreneurs while simultaneously supporting existing small businesses in Nevada County.
Supporting Local Agriculture
Agriculture is the backbone of our community. Michael is working hard to ensure that the County prioritizes and supports all sectors of this industry.
Promoting Outdoor Recreation & Agritourism
Michael supports the construction of low-impact hotels, accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and tiny homes that can sustain an influx of tourism. He supports projects that aim to make Nevada County a “must-see” destination for tourists on their way to and from the Lake Tahoe area.
Common Sense Leadership
Michael believes the Board of Supervisors should advocate for the working person. He would like to see the County create jobs and support sustainable, healthy growth in our community.
