Readers will find a newsletter inserted in today’s paper entitled “Vision” that highlights efforts underway to update Tahoe’s regional plan, a process called Pathway 2007.

The agencies working on the 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 what changes they’d like to see in their communities.

Here are the South Shore meetings:

— July 19, 6 to 9 p.m. at South Lake Tahoe Middle School, focusing on South Shore issues

— July 20, 6 to 9 p.m. at South Lake Tahoe Middle School, focusing on public lands issues.

For more information about Pathway 2007, visit or call TRPA’s Angela Moniot at (775) 588-4547, ext. 235.

Phone line to be temporarily shut down

Due to a AT&T repair to the phone system, the 911 line for South Lake Tahoe Police Department will be temporarily shut down for 15 to 20 minutes sometime between 5 and 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, according to communications coordinator Leonna Allen.

Allen advised people with emergencies at that time to call the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department at (530) 573-3300. If a major emergency occurs before the service interruption, the shutdown will not happen, Allen said.
