EIP discussion open to public

The Lake Tahoe Basin Federal Advisory Committee plans to meet Friday to discuss the Environmental Improvement Program, transportation planning and other issues related to the basin.

The meeting is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Donner Room of the Incline Village Hyatt Regency Hotel on Country Club Drive and Lake Shore Boulevard.

The committee – commonly referred to as the FACA committee because it is made possible by the Federal Advisory Committee Act – was formed in December as a result of President Clinton’s Executive Order of July 26, 1997.

The act called for the creation of a public citizens advisory body to address protection of the environmental and economic health of the Lake Tahoe region. The committee is expected to provide recommendations to the federal government about what types of projects should be funded.

The committee first met in January, and all its meetings are open to the public. Issues may be brought to the attention of the committee during an open public comment period.
