Community Enhancement decision delayed by TRPA

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency announced Friday that the governing board would not give final consideration to the agency’s Community Enhancement Program until February.

The board’s decision on which program applicants would win approval had been slated for the board meeting later this month.

The delay will give agency staff more time to study the concepts and prepare recommendations to the board.

Staff also will use the time to refine the requirements and gather more information on the redevelopment concepts submitted by the nine applicants throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin.

While the agency’s advisory planning commission and governing board still will receive an update at the January meeting, action will not be taken until the next month at a meeting on the South Shore.

The governing board will weigh whether to award such commodities or incentives as additional commercial floor space, tourist-accommodation units and modifications to height and density requirements during the Feb. 27 meeting at the agency boardroom in Stateline.
