Working to accelerate solutions to achievable local housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region.

Our Policies

Policy #1

Achievable Local Housing is a framework developed by the Mountain Housing Council (MHC) in 2017 to define the range of unmet housing needs in the region.

Policy #2

Development Impact Fees are payments imposed on all new residential and commercial construction by local governments and specials districts. MHC strives to better the fee policies to change the perception that our local fees are higher than the rest of the state and that fee calculations for developers and builders is inconsistent, unpredictable, and complex.

Policy #3

The State and Federal Policy Platform lays a framework for how the Mountain Housing Council (MHC) will direct its advocacy efforts for state and federal policies that impact achievable local housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region. The Platform was developed by a policy action team with support from Sierra Business Council’s Government Affairs program, and was approved by 15 MHC members in 2018.

Policy #4

MHC developed the Short Term Rentals White Paper to help decision makers and the community better understand how short-term units (rented for fewer than 30 days through online platforms such as Airbnb and VRBO) impact housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region.

Policy #5

MHC has conducted a study on Accessory Dwelling Units, or ADUs. The recently issued ADU White Paper highlights MHC’s research and how ADUs can be another tool to increase housing inventory throughout the region.
