January is vision time for Tahoe
Do you have a vision for how the Lake Tahoe Basin should look 20 years from now?
Pathway 2007, a multi-agency effort to create 20-year land and resource management plans for the basin, will conduct five workshops in January to gather public thoughts and suggestions in an effort to create a vision for Lake Tahoe. Two of the workshops will be inside the basin, the other three will be at Las Vegas, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
“We’re embarking on an unprecedented program of public outreach,” said Julie Regan, Pathway 2007 spokeswoman. “We’re asking for public participation at workshops from Lake Tahoe community members and visitors who want to play a role in the future of Lake Tahoe.”
The workshops will last three hours, and complimentary food and beverages will be served. The agencies involved in the planning effort include: U.S. Forest Service Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board and the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection.
“These visioning workshops are the vital first step to creating collaborative vision for Tahoe,” said Rex Norman, Pathway 2007 spokesman. “Eighty percent of the Tahoe basin is national forest public land, and the public locally, regionally and nationally has a tremendous interest in the future of its resources, land uses and the recreational opportunities the Tahoe basin affords.”
