Apply now for pair of open Capital Projects Advisory Committee seats
Published Jan. 11, 2023
Are you looking to make a difference in Placer County? Applications are open for two seats on the Capital Projects Advisory Committee including an at-large seat selected by Placer County officials and a seat representing the lodging community selected by the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association.
Both seats are open to the public, and residents with experience in housing, healthcare, arts and culture, and lodging are encouraged to apply. Applications are due Jan. 25, 2023.
“This is a great opportunity to provide input on priorities and projects in North Lake Tahoe,” said Tahoe Deputy CEO Stephanie Holloway. “Those who have a passion for community service and a vision for the future of our beautiful region should apply.”
The CAP Committee is co-convened by Placer County and the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association and is tasked with making recommendations to the Placer County Board of Supervisors for grant awards to fund infrastructure and capital projects. Since the committee’s inception in 2018, the Tourism Master Plan and Transient Occupancy Tax Investment Policy have provided the roadmap for these recommendations.
In addition to the Tourism Master Plan, this year the Board of Supervisors expanded Capital Projects Advisory Committee duties to also include recommendations on voter-supported projects that align with Measure A, including workforce housing and trash mitigation. Measure A was passed by voters in June 2022 to reauthorize the additional 2% Transient Occupancy Tax that is charged for lodging in North Lake Tahoe.
The at-large committee seat will be selected by Placer County officials. There is a preference for this applicant to have expertise in housing since Measure A specifically identified “workforce housing” as a priority for Transient Occupancy Tax dollar investment.
The North Lake Tahoe Resort Association will select the applicant for the remaining seat which represents the needs of the lodging community.
“The CAP Committee plays an important role when it comes to making decisions about how to effectively leverage TOT funds to benefit our community,” said NLTRA President and CEO Tony Karwowski. “This is an opportunity for one of the lodging businesses in our region to add their voice to the conversation.”
Both seats will serve a three-year commitment. There is no compensation for either committee seat.
