For "Truckee" to be named in the Sacramento CSA in the manner that it is must mean that Truckee is the largest municipal area within Nevada County.
Ah, gotcha. My bad. With the way that I-80 snakes in between the two counties up there, I was thinking Truckee was in Placer County. I'm not very familiar with how the CSA definitions work- could it be that these people in Nevada County are commuting to Placer County or do they need to be commuting to Sacramento County to be included in the CSA? Just curious.
