More About John Taylor


John has been working in the Yuba Sutter Region since 2004.  After first evaluating the market for a regional new home builder, he then moved on to selling the newly built homes. That work expanded into organizing the 13 production home builders in the Plumas Lake Specific Plan into a cooperative marketing plan.  At that time, John was also appointed as one of five Yuba County residents to serve on the 2005 Yuba County General Plan Update Committee.

John served as Co-Chair of the South Yuba Economic & Improvement Committee for seven years. The committee held monthly meetings featuring speakers on matters of most relevance to residents and businesses in South Yuba County. The speakers were those leading the effort on each of the subjects.

In 2006, John became a consultant to Regional landowners and local government entities. Of note, was his experience consulting with a group awarded a contract to develop the southern portion of Beale Air Force Base into a major industrial park.

John worked over 12 years as a local leader of a support group to bring Enterprise Rancheria’s proposed casino to South Yuba County. The culmination of this is the opening of the 440-million-dollar Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento on October 30, 2019. Located in Wheatland, it is projected to significantly increase the economic viability of the Yuba-Sutter Region.
