INCLINE VILLAGE “-As part of an effort to study the need for workforce housing in Incline Village and Crystal Bay, Washoe County and the North Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce have asked local stakeholders to fill out an online survey.

This is one of many methods an outside firm, Praxis Consulting, will use to determine if there is a need for workforce housing on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, said Eric Young, Washoe County planner.

“We’re taking two steps back from the affordable housing discussion,” Young said. “We’re saying let’s take a deep breath and put some real time and quality information into finding out what the real needs of the local business community and workforce are.”

The online survey was sent to many business owners and large employers in the area, Young said.
