North Tahoe’s First Tuesday Breakfast Club to address local housing

Submitted to the Sierra Sun

Placer County’s proposed short-term rental ordinance, updates on the Dollar Creek Crossing achievable housing project, and a local housing overview from Mountain Housing Council are all presentation topics at the October edition of First Tuesday Breakfast Club.

According to a news release, Placer County District 5 Supervisor Cindy Gustafson will share proposed standards the County is considering on short-term vacation rentals. Public workshops are taking place and the final proposed ordinance will be presented to the Board of Supervisors at the Oct. 22 hearing. Gustafson will provide an overview of what is included in the proposal, and County efforts to establish guidelines around such properties.

Audience members will then hear from Stacy Caldwell, CEO of Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation. Caldwell was instrumental in bringing community partners together in 2017 to form Mountain Housing Council. Learn about the composition of North Lake Tahoe’s communities and why achievable housing is in critical need. 

Closing the local housing conversation is Jennifer Merchant, Deputy CEO Tahoe. Merchant will provide an update on the Dollar Creek Crossing development in Tahoe City. The last public meeting was held on July 29, when Placer County solicited local stakeholders to represent the community on an advisory committee. The primary function of the advisory committee is to inform revisions to the initial concept proposal and guide changes that would be presented at the next public meeting.

An update from Placer County on topics that directly impact District 5 will be provided at the end of the meeting in addition to a presentation by local community partner, Sierra Senior Services.
