The Mountain Housing Council of Tahoe Truckee works with partners to accelerate solutions to achievable local housing in the region. The following information has been provided by The Homeless Coalition of Truckee Tahoe to update the community on progress related to the acquisition of the 7 Pines Motel in Kings Beach.
Summary: The State of California made Project Homekey funding available to local governments for the acquisition, rehabilitation and conversion of motels/hotels or other structures into permanent supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness or at-risk of homelessness. Placer County applied for funds and worked with the 7 Pines Motel owner to secure a purchase agreement for the motel. On October 6th, the Placer County Board of Supervisors approved the purchase agreement and the property is anticipated to close escrow in November and rehabilitation will commence on units that are currently vacant. The funding for this project requires 30% of the units be in use by December 30th. The acquisition of the 7 Pines Motel for permanent supportive housing aligns with the goal of the Homeless Coalition of Tahoe Truckee to end homelessness in the Tahoe Truckee region.
