Lake Tahoe Community College will host a class on best management practices for homeowners this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m in room D108. There were 15 seats left for the class. People should register in advance online at under class title HOR 191S.

BMPs are erosion control techniques required of all homeowners in the Tahoe Basin.

The class is part of a summer series under the college’s horticulture department. Another class on gardening will take place Aug. 19.

Saturday’s course will cover five topics: Site reconnaissance and site documentation; analyzing site conditions and need for improvements and BMPs; BMP design and installation; working with the TRPA and city and county permitting processes; and evaluations, appraisals, site assessments, and permits.

Workshops on planning slated for next week

The agencies working on Tahoe’s next regional plan will host a series of public workshops next week in communities throughout Tahoe.

In March and May, more than 1,000 attended what organizers called “place-based planning” workshops. Participants were asked to map out with markers and maps what changes they’d like to see in their communities.

The workshops are part of Pathway 2007, a coordinated process to update long-range plans for four main agencies in Tahoe: Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, U.S. Forest Service in Tahoe, Lahontan Water Board, and Nevada Division of Environmental Protection.

TRPA’s regional plan covers land-use issues, environmental measures, the rate and pace of development, and what our communities should physically look like.

The workshops run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The schedule is as follows:

July 17- Washoe/Incline Village/Crystal Bay: The Chateau, Incline Village

July 18 – Placer County: Tahoe Lake Elementary School, Tahoe City

July 19 – South Shore: South Lake Tahoe Middle School

July 20 – Public Lands: South Lake Tahoe Middle School

For more information about Pathway 2007, including upcoming public meetings, visit or call TRPA’s Angela Moniot at (775) 588-4547, ext. 235, or Julie Regan at ext. 237.
