LIVE COVERAGE: Boulder Bay redevelopment vote at TRPA meeting
KINGS BEACH, Calif. – In what may figure as a crucial turning point in the story of evolving development in the Lake Tahoe Basin, the fate of the high-profile project to renovate the Tahoe Biltmore site figures to be decided at today’s Tahoe Regional Planning Agency governing board meeting.
The meeting begins at approximately 9:45 a.m. at the North Tahoe Event Center. The morning session will be taken up by a presentation by the project applicant and subsequent governing board member comment. The board will then break for lunch. At approximately 1 p.m., the board will reconvene and begin taking public testimony. After public testimony, the board will vote.
The board will vote on three action items: whether to approve the Final Environmental Impact Statement, whether to approve the code ordinance amendments necessary to building the project applicant’s preferred option and whether to grant a construction permit to the project applicant.
Boulder Bay’s preferred option to construct a 275-room hotel with a 10,000 square-foot casino, 59 whole-ownership units, 14 on-site affordable housing units, 10 off-site affordable housing units, a spa and other amenities, while also addressing outdated environmental concerns at the Tahoe Biltmore site, in Crystal Bay, Nev.
