“To help address Lake Tahoe’s affordable housing crisis, the area plan allows property owners to build secondary dwelling units, or “mother-in-law units,” regardless of their lot’s size, providing greater housing options. The new units must be deed restricted affordable housing and cannot be used as vacation rentals.”
“Today’s approval reflects the hard work and support of many stakeholders in the Tahoe City community, all of whom helped shape this project to be a win for the local economy, a win for the environment, and a win for the future of Tahoe City,” said Samir Tuma, the Tahoe City Lodge project applicant. “As the first new North Shore lodging project in decades, we’re excited to bring visitors to local businesses, employ local residents, and help catalyze the revitalization of the community.” TRPA Thomas Lotshaw
This is great news for the local community. Especially since affordable housing has become a real concern in the area. This is a wonderful start and hopefully in time a solution to the problem. If you have any questions about building on your property, please contact me for more information.
