A “Prosperity Playbook” for the Tahoe-Truckee Regional Economy
How do We Diversify and Strengthen Tahoe’s Economy?
The Tahoe Recovery and Resiliency Strategy
“Diversifying tourism and recreation-based economies like Tahoe is a decades-old challenge that many communities in the U.S. and abroad have tackled, with some success stories to inspire us.”
A “Prosperity Playbook” for the Tahoe-Truckee Region
In June 2022, the Envision Tahoe effort culminated in the “Prosperity Playbook.” The Playbook lays out a vision the economy our community desires to have in the future: diversified, resilient, and inclusive. The Envision Tahoe team chose a “Playbook” because, by its nature, it is nimble and includes strategies that are adaptable to changing conditions. It is able to seize opportunities and look for near-term wins while maintaining focus on the ultimate goal. Among its many “plays” are progress toward fundamental issues, such as housing, transportation and tourism. Also included are new strategies, such as driving entrepreneurship, supporting new industry clusters, and creating new skill pathways for workers. Importantly, the “Prosperity Playbook” creates an opportunity to make progress in many, connected areas through collaboration, measurement and accountability.
With the publication of the “Prosperity Playbook,” the Envision Tahoe process moves into its next critical phase: community action to achieve a more diversified, resilient and inclusive economy for all.
