Survey takes ‘snapshot’ of Kings Beach housing

To say that the average household in Kings Beach spends more than they can afford to live in overcrowded conditions is not an exaggeration.

A recent survey conducted by Domus Development, the Workforce Housing Association of Truckee Tahoe and other local groups, collected data about the state of housing in the Kings Beach grid.

“It’s a really good snapshot of how people actually live,” said George Koster, an affordable housing advocate who helped coordinate the survey. “What the housing stock is and what the housing situation is in our community.”

A vast majority of respondents said they spend more than 30 percent of their income on housing expenses. Housing is deemed “affordable” if it consumes only a third of your income.
