Tahoe Basin Area Plan Amendments Workshop
November 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Due to public outcry on the proposed Tahoe Basin Area Plan Amendments, the county is hosting the workshop below on November 9th since they did not do formal or proper community engagement. Placer County staff met with stakeholders from the development and/or business community for their thoughts on strategies to make development easier. Now is the time for all of us, as residents, to participate in the conversation. Please join in person or online.
Recent experience with the Caldor fire and South Lake Tahoe proved evacuation routes are limited and the roads quickly became gridlocked. This is dangerous for the lives of residents and tourists alike.
There must be a discussion of capacity. What capacity can an environmentally sensitive and rural community support? What about enforcement? Trash, illegal camping, short term rentals run as businesses in residential neighborhoods, and many more ailments affecting our communities continue to grow without limits or enforcement oversight.
What happens when parking requirements are loosened? Do hotel guests and condo owners park on the street, in the grocery store, bank, or post office lots? Do we then start to charge for parking?
For what purpose, other than to make it easier for developers? What happens to the scenic views of the lake when the buildings get taller?
The local community should have the opportunity to participate in decision making. Our community should not be controlled by special interests. Stay informed and speak up!
