Council OKs funding for vision plan

Staff Reports

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The City Council unanimously approved contributing up to $10,000 for an economic impact market study of the South Shore Vision Plan Tuesday.

The study is the next step for the vision plan, which was developed by the South Tahoe Alliance of Resorts and looks at future development at the South Shore between Kahle Drive in Nevada and Ski Run Boulevard in California.

JoAnn Conner, president of the South Tahoe Chamber of Commerce, opposed approval of the money, saying the plan focuses too much on the Stateline casino corridor.

She said the money would be better spent on helping small businesses in the city succeed.

“We need to put our money at home first,” Conner said.

Several council members said the vision plan will benefit both sides of the stateline. Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority and Douglas County are each expected to contribute $10,000 to the market study. The resort alliance has committed $5,000 to the study.
