Harrison Avenue looking to spruce itself up

Michael Schneider

The city of South Lake Tahoe is moving forward with plans to revamp the Harrison Avenue business district.

Last week the city sent 64 proposal requests to firms which might be interested in designing improvements.

The area will be landscaped and furnished with new curbs and gutters, parking, and a sidewalk, according to Mary Kay McLanahan, associate planner.

The design firms have until Oct. 9 to respond. The city’s policy is to accept the lowest responsible bid.

The city will hold a meeting Oct. 21 with the Harrison Avenue business owners to discuss the process at a site to be named later.

McLanahan said the design may be approved by the City Council in November, paving the way for construction next season, weather permitting.

“It depends on the snow,” she said. “We may be able to get the design plans done this year and do the construction by next September.”

McLanahan said the majority of businesses are excited about the improvements.

“They’re chomping at the bit to get it done.”
