Tahoe City Golf Course: Oversight committee formed, meets Wednesday

TAHOE CITY, Calif. - When the Tahoe City Golf Course was purchased earlier this year, the funding partners agreed to form a committee to oversee the property and guide a public process regarding its future use.

That group, called the Tahoe City Golf Course Oversight Committee, will meet for the first time from 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the Tahoe City Public Utility District Board Room on Fairway Drive.

According to the Memorandum of Understanding that came with the golf course deal, the committee is composed of representatives from each of the funding agencies: Placer County (1 person), TCPUD (2 people), Truckee Tahoe Airport District (1 person) and the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association (3 people).

According to previous reports, the public partners finalized the deal earlier this year, purchasing the property from the Bechdolt family for about $4.7 million. Below are the approximate contributions to the purchase from each entity:

NLTRA: $2.495 million (from TOT revenue)

TCPUD: $1.405 million

Airport: $500,000

Placer County: $300,00 ($100,000 in Park Dedication Fees; the rest from the Wetland/Open Space Fund).

At next Wednesday's meeting, the group will review the MOU, hear various reports and discuss options for a 2013 public planning process addressing each agency's objectives, according to a press release Thursday from the PUD. For a copy of the agenda, visit
