Our Policies

Achievable Local Housing

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

Development Impact Fees

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.


The State and Federal Policy Platform lays a framework for how the 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 in 2018. The platform is updated every two years.

Short-Term Rentals

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.

Accessory Dwelling Units

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.
