Local Housing

As outlined in the 2018 McCall Area Comprehensive Plan and the City of McCall Housing Strategy, a Local Housing Program that includes a number of tools to create a variety of for-sale or rental units with various price points is needed in order to support a year-round community. As part of the Local Housing Program, this incentive-based program intends to encourage the private sector to build units with deed restrictions to increase the supply of housing for locals. Deed restrictions are an important tool to ensure housing units for locals stay affordable for the long-term for other locals who are interested in renting or purchasing a unit in the city of McCall. These restrictions ensure permanent affordability.
