Local newspaper Moonshine Ink recently published a poignant story by David Bunker on the challenges long-time locals are facing in one of the Tahoe-Truckee Region’s many mobile home parks. Read the article here.

There are close to 1,000 mobile homes in the North-Tahoe Truckee Region, and they are a critical piece of the achievable local housing landscape, necessary to serve the diverse needs of our residents. Each mobile home park is different in who they serve and who owns them.

The Mountain Housing Council of Tahoe Truckee has created an Ad-Hoc team to work on the specific issues of mobile homes as they pertain to achievable housing. If you have insight, input or are interested in joining the committee, please contact us here.
