Information session about recreation ballot measure

Staff reports

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The Lake Tahoe Bicycle Coalition and Norma Santiago, El Dorado County Supervisor for District Five, are co-hosting a public information session about the possible November ballot measure to direct existing funds to outstanding recreational maintenance and rehabilitation needs in the City of South Lake Tahoe and El Dorado County.

The meeting is scheduled for 5-7 p.m. June 16 in the Cedar Room of the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center on Rufus Allen.

The proposed measure would allow accumulating Measure S funds to be used for rehabilitation of older bike paths and youth ball fields. It would also create a bicycle advisory committee to advise the Community Facilities District Recreation Joint Powers Authority (JPA), the body which administers the Measure S funds, on bicycle needs in the community.

“The JPA and the City of South Lake Tahoe have held several public hearings and have incorporated significant public feedback into the proposed measure thus far,” said John Upton, staff to the JPA board.
