Building on the momentum of stakeholders from across the region, the newly formed Mountain Housing Council of Truckee Tahoe will host a Community Housing Event on April 29.
For the last 18 months, North Tahoe/Truckee has focused on identifying our regional housing issues and potential solutions. The 2016 Regional Housing Study was a community undertaking that engaged local businesses, public agencies, nonprofits, and community members. Now, provided with a framework and recommendations to move forward, our region is ready to work together to accelerate solutions.
The April 29 event marks the official kick-off for the Mountain Housing Council and an opportunity to celebrate the progress we have made so far as a community. Council representatives will share their commitments to solving the local housing issues and co-create a regional housing agenda to guide local leaders towards measurable impact.
“We are excited to bring everybody together to work on the critical issue of housing in our region. And we look forward to the community joining us in this process,” Stacy Caldwell, CEO Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation said.
Elevate Tahoe will also premiere its film series, “Housing for the People.” The storytelling series captures the conditions that have created North Tahoe/Truckee’s current housing climate, as well as the stories of individuals, families, and businesses who live with these realities on a daily basis. The series focuses on uncovering solutions to these local housing barriers.
For those ready to accelerate housing solutions for our community, please join the Mountain Housing Council of Tahoe Truckee this Saturday, April 29, 8 to 11 a.m. at Truckee High School.
