Several months after hosting a community meeting to discuss traffic congestion and safety concerns, El Dorado County Supervisor Sue Novasel will host a similar meeting Thursday, April 6, at 6 p.m.

The meeting will take place at the California Conservation Corps (CCC) located in Meyers at 1949 Apache Ave. Attendees are asked to park on the far side of Lira’s Market by the Golf/Snow Mobile Course, according to a newsletter from Novasel.

At the well-attended February meeting, many in attendance raised the issue of GPS apps redirecting drivers onto residential roads in order avoid traffic, which in turn causes those streets to become clogged with vehicles — some of which were unprepared for the heavy snow over the winter.

Aside from residents, representatives from the California Highway Patrol, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department and the county transportation department also attended the February meeting.

“We are all working together on these issues and reviewing the possibilities provided by the public,” Novasel said in her newsletter.

Officials with Caltrans, the sheriff’s office, transportation department, Lake Valley Fire Department and the city of South Lake Tahoe are expected to be at the meeting to report on progress toward relieving traffic flows on local streets, in addition to updating the community on other important issues.

The public is encouraged to attend.
