Re: Alice Waters’ #TahoeHousingCrisis Solution
Instead of putting the burden on residents, put it on the newcomers. Before opening, a business must secure housing for its employees. If there’s no housing available, there’s no reason for another business.

And during the non-winter months, where exactly would the “staff” and their families live, in tents and cars?

How to Deal with Short Term Rentals
Our town just limited short term rentals to one per block in residential zones.

What about property tax incentives to rent to full time locals rather than trying to tax more and spending tax resources on enforcing more regulations? If you can prove you are renting to full time local residents you receive a property tax discount or rebate. What about making it easier to create second units via an easier and more reasonably priced permitting process?

Pretty much says you’re on your own. Too many problems with no easy solutions = locals out of luck. My advice: if you’re in a good spot, hold on tight because things are going to get bumpier.
