Placer County will hold a town hall meeting on the Tahoe Basin Community Plan Update on Wednesday, Oct. 17 in Kings Beach.

The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in the North Tahoe Event Center, 8318 North Lake Blvd.

The meeting will be a chance for community members to learn more about the update process, the status of the community plan update, and the work being done by the county’s community plan working groups.

Placer County currently has nine community plans for the Tahoe Basin. Most are joint planning documents developed about 20 years ago by the county and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA).

TRPA is in the process of updating its regional plan, and all community plans within the Tahoe Basin must be consistent with the regional plan.

Through its update process, Placer County intends to consolidate the nine plans into a single policy document with four planning areas. Each planning area will have its own distinct zoning ordinance and community-specific design guidelines.

The four planning areas include:

  • North Tahoe East, which covers Kings Beach and the Stateline community;
  • Greater Tahoe City, which includes Tahoe City, Tahoe City Gateway, Lake Forest, and Dollar Hill;
  • North Tahoe West, which includes Carnelian Bay and Tahoe Vista; and
  • The West Shore, which includes Sunnyside, Homewood and Tahoma.
