Placer County will hold a town hall meeting in Kings Beach Tuesday, Oct. 25 to kick off the process for updating its long-range plans for North Lake Tahoe.The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in the North Tahoe Event Center, 8318 North Lake Blvd.
“I encourage local residents and business owners to attend, because it will be a great opportunity to learn more about the update process and how to participate fully in it,” said Placer County Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery. “Public involvement is critical to make the updated plan reflect the vision residents have for their communities. This is a once-every-20-years chance to help craft a community update—I hope everyone takes this opportunity to be a part of that.”
Supervisor Montgomery represents North Lake Tahoe on the Placer County Board of Supervisors.
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 guideline standards.
The planning areas are:
* 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, including Carnelian Bay and Tahoe Vista; and
* The West Shore, which includes Sunnyside, Homewood and Tahoma.
The county’s update process involves three agencies: the Placer County Community Development Resource Agency, Placer County Redevelopment Agency and TRPA.
