80% of the homes in Tahoe are large, single-family second homes. We need higher density affordable housing for our workforce, which developers aren’t incentivized to build.
More than 65% of North Lake Tahoe’s current housing inventory sits empty the majority of the year. At the same time, hundreds of locals compete for very few available rental units.
6,000+ people in our workforce commute daily into North Lake Tahoe from surrounding regions. Not only is that a lot of gas, but it means that when the roads are closed, businesses suffer.
