North Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe, CA: 57°F

5/13/2014 Public workshop held in Tahoe City on May 11, 2015 to review results of recent North Lake Tahoe parking study.

Placer County held a public workshop to discuss the results of a recently completed parking study of the Kings Beach and Tahoe City business districts.

The goal of the workshop was to provide an overview of existing parking capacity and use, the results of a review of the county’s current parking standards and requirements, and an examination of potential parking programs such as an in-lieu fee parking program.

An in-lieu program would allow developers to meet some or all of their parking requirements by paying fees, rather than providing parking on-site. Fee revenue would be used by the county for public parking.

In the study, LSC Transportation Consultants Inc. proposes recommendations for helping the county and area stakeholders formulate a comprehensive plan that best meets the parking and mobility needs of Kings Beach and Tahoe City.

Placer County sees the study as the first step towards developing a plan that:

  • Provides easier and more convenient access to parking;
  • Better supports shopping districts; and
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions caused by cars circling for parking spaces.

The study is a key part of a larger effort to develop strategies and implementation measures that address parking issues in Kings Beach and Tahoe City while fitting in with the public’s vision for their communities.
