Housing Assessment and Action Plan
South Shore Housing Opportunity Assessment and Action Plan
What is it?
An assessment of the housing market, resident and employee housing needs, business employment challenges, as well as a summary of the opportunities and constraints to providing better and more housing that residents and employees can afford in the South Tahoe region. Although the Tahoe Prosperity Center works regionally around the entire Lake Tahoe Basin, the North Shore already completed a Housing Survey and Needs Assessment. For information on the efforts being led by the Mountain Housing Council on the North Shore, please visit: mountainhousingcouncil.org.
The Assessment will identify:
- how much housing is needed,
- what type of housing (ownership or rental),
- at which price point and
- for whom
- We believe the housing survey will show that housing is needed across the entire housing spectrum – from homeless to restaurant workers to teachers and nurses. But we need to hear from you directly! If you live or work on the South Shore, please take the Housing Survey Here!
Why is this important?
A diverse housing stock is needed to meet the changing circumstances of households over time. When households in any life stage (from beginning renters, to first-time homebuyers, to move-up buyers, and aging households seeking to downsize), have an opportunity to find suitable housing for their needs, this allows them to grow and change within the community, building stability, year-round residency, community vibrancy and support for businesses and the economy.
