Future of Lake Tahoe Airport to be discussed at public meeting

Tribune staff report

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — The City of South Lake Tahoe will present an update on a plan next week regarding the future of Lake Tahoe Airport.

The public meeting is being held as a platform to receive needed input from the community and to inform residents of recent progress in the Lake Tahoe Airport Master Plan.

The final phase one report was released last month.

A range of development options will be presented at the meeting, where attendees will have the chance to visit numerous stations focused on certain aspects of the plan, according to a press release. Participants will also be able to meet with city staff and planners to ask questions.

Lake Tahoe Airport is owned and operated by the city, but there has been no scheduled passenger service at the facility since 2001.

In 2013, the city began the current Airport Master Plan Update in order to determine “the current and future potential of the Airport,” according to the phase one report. That process is split into three phases.

Phase one consists of an examination of existing conditions at the airport, operations analysis, sustainability issues and an environmental overview, among other things.

The full phase one report can be viewed online through the city’s website at http://www.cityofslt.us.

The meeting will be held March 16 at Lake Tahoe Airport, located at 1901 Airport Road in South Lake Tahoe. It starts at 5:30 p.m.
