Council to discuss Lakeview Commons rules
February 15, 2013
Events at Lakeview Commons could fall under a new set of guidelines under a proposal that will be in front of the South Lake Tahoe City Council on Tuesday.
The guidelines are modeled after the city’s event guidelines approved in April 2012, according to a city staff report. The guidelines would limit the number of people at events at the popular recreation spot at El Dorado Beach to 2,000.
Under the draft guidelines, businesses and residents within 300 feet of a event would be notified if more than 501 attendees are anticipated at an event, or if amplified music or road closures are expected.
Sound would be required to stay under 95 decibels, be limited to 10 a.m. to one hour after sunset and a list of entertainers would need to be provided to the city no later than 30 days prior to an event under the guidelines.
Rental fees for the area would range from $500 to $1,000 depending on the size of the event and the number of people expected. Applicants may request sponsorship from the city for non-profit events and those benefiting the community, under the proposal.
The City Council meets starting at 9 a.m. Tuesday at Lake Tahoe Airport, located at 1901 Airport Road.
