California Governor Newsom directed the California Department of General Services
(DGS) to identify excess state properties as potential affordable housing development sites [Executive Order (N-06-19)]. Two California Tahoe Conservancy parcels were identified as ideal sites to fulfill N-06-19. The two parcels are identified by El Dorado County Assessor’s Parcel Numbers (APN) 032-291-031 & 032-291-028, located in South Lake Tahoe, California. DGS’ approved ground lease will facilitate the construction and operation of the Sugar Pine Village, a 248-unit affordable multi-family housing project. The project draws on a ground lease on state asset lands and strong partnership of Basin entities including TRPA, El Dorado County, City of South Lake Tahoe, DGS, and the California Department of Housing and Community Development to coordinate loans and grant funding supporting development of the sites. Project development helps provide workforce housing identified necessary under N-06-19 and implements the State’s vision of mixed-use and residential development in close proximity to transit and pedestrian-friendly centers, supporting a vibrant, sustainable community.
