Tahoe Conservancy and Partner Agencies to Host Virtual Public Meeting about Affordable Housing on Conservancy Land in South Lake Tahoe

Housing Solutions at the Y

South Lake Tahoe, Calif.—April 7, 2020—The California Tahoe Conservancy and its partners will host a virtual meeting on April 23 to update the community about housing needs and potential solutions using two Conservancy “asset land” parcels near the South Tahoe “Y.”

Based on a collaborative effort underway to address housing affordability at Tahoe, the Conservancy is partnering with the California Department of General Services (DGS) and Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) to explore opportunities for housing on two sites in South Lake Tahoe. The Conservancy Board has designated 1860 Lake Tahoe Boulevard and 1029 Tata Lane as asset lands that could support sustainable development consistent with local planning. Both properties are subject to the City of South Lake Tahoe’s Tahoe Valley Area Plan.

Tahoe is receiving additional support and capacity from DGS and HCD following Governor Gavin Newsom’s executive order to make some types of state land available to develop affordable housing. Any development under this executive order must be at least 50 percent affordable.

The Conservancy and its partners, which also include the City of South Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, held a public meeting in December 2019. On April 23, the agencies will provide an informational update for 1860 Lake Tahoe Boulevard and 1029 Tata Lane properties and continue to seek public input.
