It borders the growing community of Lincoln, and is just 25 miles from downtown Sacramento and the Sacramento International Airport.

The county is one of the fastest growing in California, and Placer's population is expected to exceed a quarter of a million in 2005. These new residents are drawn by a wide range of housing opportunities. Another draw to the area is a diverse and healthy economy. Placer County is home to an expanding computer and business services industry along its southern border, and tourism remains high in the mountains where world class ski resorts flourish in the Sierra's powdery slopes.
Among business heavyweights that call Placer County home are Oracle, Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Roseville Medical Center and the Union Pacific Railroad, as well as NEC Electronics and Hewlett-Packard. Another plus is the Galleria at Roseville, a regional mall featuring 1.1 million square feet of retail space.
