Live Oak lies above Yuba City on Highway 99 … about 45 minutes north of sacramento international airport. The small town of 7,500 people is planning to annex 3,000 acres, with county approval … ushering in new subdivisions for 30,000 people or more. Sutter County is emerging as the lower-cost alternative for regional housing. Most of its future new residents likely to commute south on I-5 or other highways to jobs in or near sacramento or placer counties. While the new home market is in a slump around the Sacramento region today, this project wouldn’t have homes being built until several years from now.
