City unveils redevelopment map
The city released the Tahoe Valley Redevelopment Survey Area shown here designed to explore positioning the “Y”-based area as a redevelopment zone.
The redevelopment idea has been brought up as a possible tool to help finance and advance the “Y” plan a group of citizens spent two years creating.
City Redevelopment Manager Gene Palazzo said Wednesday he has begun discussing with consultants how to proceed with an analysis that will tell the city the extent of households, businesses, acreage and level of blight constituting the zone – which jumps from the “Y” to the area at Al Tahoe Boulevard.
The existing redevelopment zone that encompasses the Marriott-anchored Heavenly Village spans a 173-acre area from Herbert Avenue to Stateline.
The city requested the expanded survey area last month as an initial step in creating a state-sanctioned redevelopment area.
“The type of redevelopment activity being discussed for a new project area is different from the approach taken at Ski Run and Stateline. I like to refer to this approach as the city’s new community improvement area rather than traditional redevelopment,” City Manager Dave Jinkens said.
