Public Ideas and Solutions


The Mountain Housing Council of Tahoe Truckee is a collaborative effort working to identify priorities and create an innovative and accelerated portfolio of solutions for regional housing issues. In an effort to gather valuable community feedback and keep the public up-to-date on the Council’s work, meetings are open to the public.

Following is a set of meeting protocols we ask public members attending Council meetings to adhere to in order to keep meetings running efficiently:

  • Provide comment during “Public Comment” section of the agenda
  • Please limit comment to two minutes to ensure all those interested in speaking will have the opportunity to share their ideas
  • Please follow the rules of the “Speak your Peace” Campaign as adopted by Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation:
    • Pay attention: Be aware and attend to the people and the world around you
    • Listen: Genuinely focus on others as they speak so that you may better understand their perspectives
    • Be inclusive: Welcome all points of view, every individual, and all groups of citizens working for the greater good
    • Don’t gossip: And do not accept when others do
    • Show respect: Honor other people and their opinions
    • Be agreeable: Consider the possibility you might be wrong, admit the things you do not know
    • Apologize: Be sincere and repair damaged relationships
    • Give constructive criticism: Be sure that your intention is to help
    • Take responsibility: Don’t shift responsibility or blame others

Martis Valley Affordable Housing Project Wins $16 Million Grant

In a big win for achievable housing in the Truckee-Tahoe region, the State of California has awarded $16.25 million to a 56-unit affordable housing project in the Martis Valley. The grant will also fund regional transportation projects.

The grant is a big step forward for the Meadow View Place affordable housing project, a critically needed workforce housing project that could begin construction as early as next year.

Mountain Housing Council partners, including Placer County, were integral in supporting the successful grant application. That collaborative approach between Mountain Housing Council partners is one of the reasons the organization was formed.
