Tahoe Community Plan Updates Continue With Release of Two Planning Documents and Scheduling of Four Public Workshops

September 20, 2013

Placer County continues its efforts to update guiding planning documents for the county’s portion of the Lake Tahoe Basin by scheduling four topical public workshops and releasing two planning documents.

Now available through the County’s Planning Services Division are the Placer County Tahoe Basin Policy Document Existing Conditions Report and the Placer County Kings Beach Vision Plan as part of the Division’s ongoing efforts to update its Community/General Plans in the Tahoe Basin.

The Existing Conditions Report analyzes environmental resources and hazards, and land use and infrastructure. The report also discusses items that need to be addressed as part of the County’s Community Plan Update and new Area Plans for the Basin.

The Kings Beach Vision Plan is part of the Tahoe Basin Community Plan Update. The Vision Plan continues visioning work by the county’s North Tahoe East Plan Area Team by illustrating existing opportunities to create a diverse and resident-friendly, recreation-centered community. The plan’s goal is to serve as the blueprint for how the community should evolve over the next 20 to 30 years. Both documents can be found electronically by clicking on the following link: Tahoe Basin CPU.

Also part of the planning update process is a series of public workshops that will use the Existing Conditions Report as background. Input received at the workshops will help shape the Tahoe Basin Community Plan policy document. The public is invited to all of the upcoming workshops, all of which will take place in the North Tahoe Event Center, 8318 North Lake Blvd., Kings Beach:
