COMMUNITY INVITED TO SHORELINE WORKSHOP AT TRPA
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) is inviting people to attend an upcoming community workshop on Thursday, Nov. 3, to share input and ideas and help guide the creation of a Shoreline Plan that protects Lake Tahoe’s scenic shoreline and enhances recreation access to the lake. The workshop is open to the public and will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the TRPA offices in Stateline,128 Market St.
The shoreline is where most residents and millions of visitors interact with Lake Tahoe. The Shoreline Plan aims to balance use of structures like piers, buoys, and marinas with protecting the environment and ensuring recreational access to the lake.
“Our goal is for the Shoreline Plan to reach consensus on complex issues related to shoreline access, diversity of users, and environmental protection,” said Brandy McMahon, principal planner at TRPA who is helping lead the planning process. “We are working with a broad range of agencies and shoreline stakeholder groups and certainly want to hear from the general public as well.”
The Shoreline Plan will be developed over the next two years and will draw on significant community input and rigorous scientific study to create updated standards and regulations for shoreline structures. The plan aims to address recreational access, marinas, boating, streamlining permitting processes, low lake water levels, and environmental effects on the lake.
To learn more about the plan, sign up for information about meetings, or review public input from a workshop held in Kings Beach on Sept. 21, visit http://www.shorelineplan.org.
