TRPA unanimously approves Landing settlement
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency unanimously approved the settlement agreement with The Landing Resort and Spa on Wednesday for the unauthorized removal of four trees near the lake.
The resort removed the trees without approval last year to allegedly improve the property’s view of Lake Tahoe. The trees ranged from 14- to 24- inches wide.
As per the settlement agreement, the resort’s owner, James Demetriades, is required to pay a $40,000 fine and plant four 15- to 20-foot Jeffrey pine trees in a “similar location” to where the trees were removed.
