Workshops focusing on recreation needs

Two upcoming community workshops will focus on the role outdoor recreation plays in enhancing tourism and quality of life for the South Shore and offer residents a chance to share their views about parks, trails, events and recreation programs.

The workshops are being hosted by El Dorado County, Douglas County and the city of South Lake Tahoe.

One is set for 6:30-8:30 p.m. Dec. 11 at the South Tahoe High School Student Union, 1735 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

The other is 6:30-8:30 p.m. Dec. 12 at the Kahle Community Center, 236 Kingsbury Grade.

A short presentation by city and county officials will focus on the region's parks and recreation resources.

That will be followed by small group discussions about strategies and actions needed to improve recreation in the area for residents and tourists and a large group discussion about the community vision for recreation and the role it should play in enhancing economic vitality.

Feedback from the workshops will be used to develop recommendations for two South Shore planning efforts: the Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan for South Lake Tahoe and El Dorado County and the Tahoe Basin Recreation and Tourism Plan for Douglas County.
