The California Park and Recreation Society has honored the city of South Lake Tahoe with an Award of Excellence for Lakeview Commons at El Dorado Beach.
On June 20, Lakeview Commons was dedicated to the public for its use, recreation and enjoyment of the surroundings. The facility was a team effort among the California Tahoe Conservancy, the city of South Lake Tahoe and El Dorado County. The project was made possible by the families and friends who provided the land to El Dorado County and to the California voters who passed Proposition 84, the 2006 Parks and Water Bond Act, which funded the majority of the costs of this project.
"The CPRS awards program is the highest recognition our agency can receive and our award is a credit to the (staff, volunteers, partners, etc) that made this happen," city recreation coordinator Lauren Thomaselli stated in a press release. We are honored to receive this award on behalf of our residents."
The city will be honored at the 2013 California and Pacific Southwest Recreation and Park Training Conference, which will be held March 6-8 in San Jose.
