Conservancy posting property tags
The California Tahoe Conservancy began posting property tags Friday to help the public better identify its lands in the south shore.
The signs featuring the Conservancy logo will be placed on trees on 1,000 lots in the City of South Lake Tahoe and into Meyers this fall and winter.
The Conservancy will employ a phased approach to sign all 4,700 properties throughout the California side of the Basin in the upcoming years.
“We often receive phone calls asking if we own a certain parcel,” said California Tahoe Conservancy Executive Director, Patrick Wright. “These property tags, like those of the Forest Service, should help eliminate some of that confusion for the public, our staff and other land managers.”
The Conservancy’s Land Management Program works in conjunction with Tahoe Resource Conservation District (TRCD) and Clean Tahoe to manage these lands on behalf of the people of California.
In addition to signing properties, the Conservancy conducts year-round inspection, maintenance, and restoration projects on its urban lots. This year it has inspected more than 2,415 properties, restored more than 63,000-square-feet of disturbed area, planted hundreds of native plants, and completed 33 restoration projects.
One of the agency’s major projects was to improve the South Shore Bike Trail on Conservancy land near Highland Woods by replacing 450 feet of barbed wire fence with new timber fence. Staff also restored a Conservancy lot along the bike path that was used for illegal parking and snow storage. The lot now serves as open space for bike riders as well as an area to capture and treat runoff.
The Conservancy encourages contact about any issues on these lands, call (530) 542-5580 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
