Project/Program Updates
South Lake Tahoe Riverside Ave. Lots for
Affordable Ownership Workforce Housing

The City of South Lake Tahoe awarded SJCLT the right of first refusal to acquire 3 adjacent lots on Riverside Avenue for development of permanently affordable workforce housing.  Building plans have been approved, building permits have been issued, and construction financing has been arranged.  Construction has begun and the three families under contract are looking forward to moving in to their new homes.

Motel to Home Program Grows

SJCLT's Motel to Home Program continues to grow. With the latest beneficiary, the program has now moved families, including 32 children living in motels, to more permanent & appropriate apartment homes. SJCLT is looking to expand the program beyond South Lake Tahoe.

Site Preparation Under Way for Sugar Pine Village

The city of South Lake Tahoe and Related California announced that the first phase will begin with site preparation and infrastructure work. Vertical construction of 68 affordable housing units will take place once building season commences in May 2023.

South Lake Tahoe Mayor Devin Middlebrook said in a news release, “This marks a significant step forward for this innovative project. The city of South Lake Tahoe is aware of the urgent need for workforce housing. There is still plenty to do, but I am incredibly happy with what we’ve accomplished thus far through this public-private partnership.”

Earlier this year, the California Department of Housing and Community Development awarded the Sugar Pine Village project $19.6 million as part of its Multifamily Housing Program, which assists with new construction, rehabilitation, and preservation of permanent and transitional rental housing for lower-income households. Sugar Pine Village will deliver much-needed affordable, workforce housing to residents earning 30-60% of the Area Median Income and is the largest affordable multi-family housing project in South Lake Tahoe to-date.
