Housing Assessment and Action Plan

South Shore Housing Opportunity Assessment and Action Plan

What is it?

The Housing Assessment and Action Plan began in June 2019 and will be complete in March 2020. There are two phases: Phase 1 is the Housing Needs Assessment and Opportunities Report (completed in October 2019) and Phase 2 is the Action Plan (begun in November 2019 and complete in March 2020).

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.

ONLY 21% OF TAHOE RESIDENTS CAN AFFORD THE MEDIAN HOUSE PRICE

Schedule
