On June 20 to 22, Tahoe Chamber led a delegation of 15 Tahoe/Truckee community leaders to Colorado to visit Vail, Breckenridge, and Keystone, Colorado, destinations carefully selected for a study on housing due to their similarities to Tahoe/Truckee. The delegates, calling the trip the “Chamber Trek,” heard presentations from local housing officials, engaged in interactive discussions, and toured a number of innovative developments, some for rent and some for sale. The participants plan to convene again with the goal of broadening the forums for dialogue, gathering data to get the hard facts about our community housing needs, and taking action steps here at home. The overall goal of the study was to learn from our neighboring communities’ best practices, as they confront similar issues to our own. According to Steve Teshara, Chamber CEO, “We were inspired to see firsthand the long-term commitment to community housing and sustainability in the communities we visited in Colorado. It’s essential we do the same.”
