Sugar Pine Village in South Lake Tahoe is envisioned to be a new residential, mixed-use affordable community that compliments the existing neighborhood while also preserving native species and sensitive land. The project will be designed to provide residents with new high quality, sustainable housing designed to support active transportation, encouraging biking, walking, access to transit, and connection with nearby trails for the local workforce and their families.

The State of California has selected Related California and Saint Joseph Community Land Trust team as part of a competitive process to develop the Sugar Pine Village project at the “Y” under Governor Newsom’s Executive Order promoting affordable housing development.

The Project Team is composed of a joint venture between Related California and South Lake Tahoe-based Saint Joseph Community Land Trust, a 501c3 non-profit community land trust.

Saint Joseph Community Land Trust (SJCLT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in 2002 in response to the rising housing costs and the negative impacts of these costs on the broad social fabric, well-being, and sustainability of communities around Lake Tahoe. SJCLT’s mission is to provide high quality, dignified, permanently affordable homes and supportive programs to Lake Tahoe’s low and moderate-income employees and residents. Further, SJCLT provides SJCLT resident and community participation in management of the organization and leadership opportunities for low and moderate-income residents of the Tahoe Basin. Saint Joseph Community Land Trust has successfully completed affordable development projects in South Lake Tahoe, including the Sierra Garden Apartments project, which neighbors the Sugar Pine Village site.
