Lake Tahoe Real Estate  

May 9th              




The Sustainable Community Alliance is working to put an initiative on the ballot this November to provide voters in the City of South Lake Tahoe with an alternative to a complete ban of VHRs in residential areas.  This initiative seeks to strike a balance by preserving the right for a homeowner to rent their property on a short-term basis, continue to allow the robust niche business of management and maintenance of VHRs in our area and the jobs it provides, while still ensuring robust enforcement to preserve neighborhoods and ensure that residents retain peaceful enjoyment of their property.

What the Sustainable Community Alliance VHR Restrictions Ballot Initiative does:
*       Keeps the cap at 1400
*       Reduces occupancy from 2 per bed plus 4 – to 2 per bed plus 2
*       If someone is caught renting their property without a permit (illegally) they will NEVER be able to get a permit
*       Amplified sound will not be allowed at ANY time of the day
*      Requires all VHR operators to pay at least $1,500 annually to be able to retain their permit – this is intended to get people who are not using their permit to retire it, and to get the waitlist moving
*       Requires the City to convene a Citizens Oversight committee
*     Requires the City to create a commission to study the feasibility of TOT revenue to go towards affordable housing
*      Requires the City to create and distribute an informational pamphlet for all VHR guests. 

What can you do to help?
Signature gathering: We will be required to obtain nearly 1100 signatures on this initiative, by registered voters in the City of South Lake Tahoe, to get this on the ballot.  You can help by getting the word out to your friends, neighbors, clients and businesses that you visit.  Refer people to the STAR office or ask about circulating petitions and gathering signatures yourself. *NOTE: If people are not registered to vote, they can do so AT THE SAME TIME that they sign the petition. The easiest way to do this is on your smart phone at
